Abstract

Paragangliomas of the organ of Zuckerkandl are rare tumors with only several case reports noted in the literature. Synchronous paraganglioma occur sporadically, and on occasion, in association with several genetic syndromes. Paraganglioma of the organ of Zuckerkandl with synchronous carotid body paraganglioma is described herein. Traditionally, surgical resection of abdominal paraganglioma involved an exploratory laparotomy. In this manuscript, we describe one of the first reported laparoscopic resections of this tumor and review the literature on multiple paragangliomas and their associated genetic syndromes.
