Aorticopulmonary paraganglioma. A case report with immunohistochemical studies and literature review.


We present a case of nonfunctioning aorticopulmonary paraganglioma in a 41-year-old man. The mediastinal tumor was accidentally discovered on a chest roentgenogram performed for an unrelated minor chest trauma. Complete resection of the tumor was done and followed by postoperative radiotherapy. Two years after surgery, the patient is well and asymptomatic.
