Sympathetic PGLs are mostly functional, presenting in a variable and non-specific way. We report a case of PGL, which was diagnosed following investigation of acute myocardial infarction in a postpartum woman, highlighting that the absence of typical symptoms may delay the diagnosis.</p> Sara Pinto, Raquel Ferreira, Anabela Gonzaga, José Mesquita Bastos ##submission.copyrightStatement## Tue, 16 Apr 2019 17:19:59 +0200
