Abstract

Paragangliomas (PGLs) originate from neuroendocrine cells of the autonomic paraganglia and are classically found in the neck and skull base region, chest cavity, abdomen, pelvis, and bladder. We report a rare case of a mesenteric PGL in a 65-year-old asymptomatic female. She was treated by surgical resection of the small bowel mass and corresponding mesentery. Twelve prior cases of mesenteric paragangliomas exist in the literature. We report our findings and brief review of the current literature to date.
