    A 32-year-old woman who died suddenly during pregnancy as a result of an adrenal phaeochromocytoma also suffered from von Recklinghausen's disease. 21 years earlier she had an optic nerve glioma successfully removed. The association between von Reckinghausen's disease and optic nerve glioma/phaeochromocytoma is well established. So far as is known, the present case is the first ever published with the triad: von Recklinghausen's disease, optic nerve glioma, and phaeochromocytoma.
