A case report of a 40-year-old female with an unusually small pheochromocytoma of the organ of Zuckerkandl is discussed. The tumor is diagnosed by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examination, which was requested to evaluate her as a potential renal donor. There is a family history of Carney's triad (gastric leiomyosarcoma, extra-adrenal pheochromocytoma and pulmonary chondroma). The MRI technique and findings are discussed.
