We report a case of a 17-year-old adolescent male with Takotsubo-like cardiomyopathy in the setting of pheochromocytoma who presented with hematemesis, hypertension, and pallor. Takotsubo-like cardiomyopathy is rarely reported in the pediatric population, and this is the first report in the pediatric literature of Takotsubo-like cardiomyopathy associated with both pheochromocytoma and an elongated course of the left anterior descending coronary artery.
