Case Report- Vagal paraganglioma|
Tewari M, Srivastava V, Shukla HS
Vagal paragangliomas (VP) arise from paraganglia associated with the vagus nerve. Approximately 200 cases have been reported in the medical literature. The management of VP is associated with partial or total loss of vagal function. We report a case of VP in a young boy who presented with neck mass associated with recurrent laryngeal nerve paralysis. Evaluation of the patient was done by laryngoscope and ultrasound examination of the neck. The paraganglioma was excised along with the vagus nerve with ipsilateral loss of vagal function.
