A 31-year-old male was diagnosed to be suffering from a vesical pheochromocytoma and a successful partial cystectomy was performed, the case being followed up for 30 months. Microscopically, the tumour tissue was seen to contain cells with a abundant granular, eosinophilic cytoplasm, resembling oncocytes. Ultrastructurally, the predominant cells were those with a deeply eosinophilic, granular cytoplasm, which contained a large number of mitochondria and very few catecholamine granules, these strongly resembled oncocytes.
