The authors describe a case of a 50-year-old woman admitted in the emergency room with a shock with multiorgan disfunction. An adrenal mass was identified in the initial approach. She was admitted in the intensive care unit and had a progressive worsening to multiorgan failure. The diagnosis of a pheochromocytoma multisystem crisis was done and she was treated successfully with emergency surgery. After surgery, however, an irreversible ischemia of her right hand and both limbs persisted leading to several amputations. After plastic surgery intervention, adaptation to prosthetics and functional rehabilitation, the patient was able to return to her life.
