Abstract

Introduction: Paragangliomas are mostly localized in the adrenal medulla and they are usually pheochromocytomas, derived from the neural crest, but otherwise mesenteric paragangliomas are extremely rare tumors.

Case Presentation: In this article we represent a 59-year-old female with an abdominal mass and pain due to mesenteric paraganglioma.

Conclusions: Paragangliomas can occur as mesenteric tumors; usually, preoperative accurate diagnosis is not possible with imaging methods and precise diagnosis is possible after histological evaluation.
