Abstract

Non-secreting retroperitoneal paraganglioma is a rare entity that originates in chromaffin cells of the sympathetic and parasympathetic constituent of the autonomic nervous system. Its variable and nonspecific presentations and its infrequent incidence can lead to delayed diagnosis, hence the risk of its expansion into large sizes. Our paper describes a rare form of retroperitoneal paraganglioma mimicking a para-aortic abscess treated by laparoscopic surgery. We also refer to a literature review to discuss this entity?s clinical, biological, radiological, and therapeutic features.
