Adrenal Glands – Diseases Of The Medulla

There is no disease associated with undersecretion of epinephrine, since the body has compensatory mechanisms for secreting epinephrine from other sites. However, in rare circumstances, constant over-Secretion may result from a tumor of the adrenal medulla, known as pheochromocytoma. The person may have continuous fight or flight symptoms, including dizziness, increased pulse rate and palpitations, and sweating. Surgical removal of the tumor is necessary and the outlook is favorable.
