A 27-year-old male without relevant familial or personal history had three TIAs in the last year, lasting for about 20 min with partial right palsy and aphasia. By the time he was cared for in the Emergency Department. he had already recovered; his lab tests, chest X-ray and EKG were normal but his BP was high (PAS 170190 mmHg, PAD 105120 mmHg). He had no chest pain, headache or neurovegetative symptoms. On discharge the patient was treated with manidipine and ASA and referred to the Neurology Clinic and to our Hypertension Clinic for phaeochromocitoma/paraganglioma screening and diagnostic workup.
