Pheochromocytoma is a rare neuroendocrine tumour with a highly variable clinical presentation. It may present with unusual presentation and these tend to mislead the physician into a
delayed diagnosis. Typical cardiac manifestations include ST-segment deviations mimicking
myocardial infarction, QT interval prolongation, blood pressure fluctuations, arrythmias mostly
tachycardia but rarely may present with bradyarrythmia. We describe a case of pheochromocytoma with rare findings of Intermittent AV dissociation associated with Junctional and ventricular ectopic rhythm.

Key words: Pheochromocytoma, Myocardial Infarction, QT interval prolongation, AV dissociation, Bradyarrythmia
