Pheochromocytoma is a rare, catecholamine secreting tumor arising from chromaffin cells. Presentation of this tumor is highly variable, the most common being hypertension, tachycardia, sweating, and headache. Lactic acidosis and back pain are rare complications of this tumor. We report a 51-year-old gentleman with composite pheochromocytoma, which is rarer than pheochromocytoma, presenting as severe back pain and lactic acidosis.
