17 Possible Causes for Urine Catecholamines Increased - with Pheochromocytoma

  • Hyponatremia

    Pheochromocytoma was subsequently ruled out by normal catecholamine levels in a 24-hour urine sample.[revportcardiol.org] After withdrawal of indapamide and isotonic saline fluid perfusion, her sodium increased to 139 mmol/l by the end of the first week.[revportcardiol.org]

  • Acute Intermittent Porphyria

    After an extensive screening for secondary causes of hypertension, the patient was suspected of having pheochromocytoma due to increased levels of catecholamines in the plasma[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] and the urine, and positive (131)I-metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) accumulation in the gallbladder.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pheochromocytoma

    Hormonal investigations revealed an increase in fractionated catecholamine and metanephrine levels in 24-hour urine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical Situations That May Alter Measured Levels of Catecholamines and Metabolites Certain clinical situations may increase both plasma catecholamine and urine catecholamine[onlinelibrary.wiley.com] Urine catecholamine levels are increased in most people with neuroblastoma.[pennstatehershey.adam.com]

  • Cyanotic Congenital Heart Disease

    Catecholamine hypersecretion was observed in the blood and urine, and abdominal computed tomography revealed a tumor in the right adrenal gland.[jstage.jst.go.jp] During cardiac catheterization, her blood pressure increased markedly, and an α-blocker was administered.[jstage.jst.go.jp] The patient did not have any specific symptoms of syndrome related to pheochromoytoma or a family history of pheochromocytoma.[jstage.jst.go.jp]

  • Acrodynia

    This catecholamine excess is responsible for the pheochromocytoma-like syndrome.[pediatrics.aappublications.org] Mercury inactivates SAM; as a consequence, norepinephrine, dopamine, and epinephrine accumulate in the urine in increased amounts where they can be detected.[pediatrics.aappublications.org]
