A family in which both the father and daughter had pheochromocytoma is reported. Our own patients had familial pheochromocytoma that differ from sporadic ones because there was an expression at an early age and bilateral and extraadrenal involvement in one of them. They also differ from familial ones because there was no evidence of other familial syndromes, e.g. MEN type II Von Hipped-Lindau disease or neurofibromatosis.
