The authors report an 8-yr-old boy who presented with hypertension, psychosis, and visual disturbances due to a left adrenal phaeochromocytoma which was excised. After 4 years, the child developed multifocal phaeochromocytomas in the left suprarenal area, right adrenal gland, and left para-aortic region. The tumors were excised along with re-implantation of normal adrenal tissue from the right adrenal into the omentum. The course of the disease and the family history were suggestive of von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease.
