Pheochromocytoma are tumors arising from the chromaffin tissue located in the adrenal medulla and are associated with typical symptoms and signs. Occasionally, metastasis, defined as the presence of tumor cells at sites other than the original site, secondary to pheochromocytoma have been reported. Pelvic metastatic malignant pheochromocytoma has rarely been reported in the English literature. Here, we have reported a very rare case of pelvic metastatic malignant pheochromocytoma, with particular focus on sonoelastographic features.
