Adrenal ganglioneuromas are rare tumors originating from the neural crest tissue of the sympathetic nervous system. The clinical presentation for most patients is asymptomatic, and most of these tumors are hormone silent. We report a case of dopamine-secreting adrenal ganglioneuroma associated with paroxysmal hypertensive attacks in an adult patient. A 46-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with a 2-month history of right flank pain, and a 2-year history of paroxysmal hypertensive… 
Dopamine secreting adrenal tumor-ganglioneuroma rather than pheochromocytoma: case report.
TLDR
A case of an incidentally found right sided calcified adrenal mass with evidence of marked dopamine excess, suspicious for pheochromocytoma in a 70-year-old female, illustrating that although rare, ganglioneuroma should be included on the differential diagnosis for functional adrenal tumors.
Hormone-secreting large adrenal ganglioneuroma in an adult patient: A case report and review of literature
TLDR
An adult case of endocrinologically active adrenal GN incidentally diagnosed in a 64-year-old male patient with history of uncontrolled hypertension is described, the second report that describes hormone-secreting pure Adrenal GN in an adult from Turkey in the English literature.
Adrenal ganglioneuroma: report of a new case
TLDR
A case of adrenal GN incidentally diagnosed in a 68-year-old female patient from Turkey, the fifth case in an adult patient fromTurkey in English literature to be described, is described.
Ganglioneuroma of the adrenal gland and retroperitoneum: A case report
TLDR
Ganglioneuroma occurs rarely in adrenal gland and preoperative diagnosis is difficult since symptoms are usually nonspecific, however, it should be included in differential diagnosis of adrenal or retroperitoneal mass.
Association of Adrenal Gangli- oneuroma with Addison's Dis- ease: A Case Study
TLDR
A case of adrenal ganglioneuroma incidentally diagnosed in a 24-year-old female patient whose physical examination, routine laboratory studies and hormonal tests were within normal ranges, and the immediate post-operative evolution was complicated by acute adrenal failure whose etiologic investigation was in favor of an Addison's disease.
Adrenal ganglioneuromas: incidentalomas with misleading clinical and imaging features.
TLDR
Adrenal ganglioneuromas are rare incidentalomas that can mimic primary or secondary adrenal malignancies as well as pheochromocytomas and resection via laparoscopic approach is safe and effective.
Adrenal Ganglioneuroma Presenting As Left Renal Mass
  • H. Ozturk

TLDR
Ganglioneuromas are among the rare diseases that should be considered in the evaluation of renal masses, particularly in the differential diagnosis of upper pole tumors of the kidneys.
Adrenal Ganglioneuroma Presenting As Left Renal Mass.

Ganglioneuromas are among the rare diseases that should be considered in the evaluation of renal masses, particularly in the differential diagnosis of upper pole tumors of the kidneys.
Dopamine-secreting adrenal ganglioneuroma in a child: beware of intraoperative rebound hypertension.
TLDR
A 15-year-old normotensive adolescent girl with a 2-month history of left flank pain is described, finding an adrenal ganglioneuroma during laparoscopic adrenalectomy and after resection, dopamine levels normalized.
Ganglioneuroma: An Overview
TLDR
Ganglioneuromas (GNs) are rare, benign, well-differentiated, slow-growing tumors that arise from neural crest tissue of the sympathetic nervous system and are discovered incidentally through imaging studies such as ultrasonograpy, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging.

We report a case of adrenal ganglioneuroma. A 33-year-old woman visited our clinic with a complaint of epigastralgia. Abdominal computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed
Asymptomatic adrenal tumor; 386 cases in Japan including our 7 cases.
TLDR
It is suggested that an adrenal mass larger than 3 cm should be removed and a patient with a smaller cortical tumor should be carefully followed up, and differential diagnosis between malignant and benign adrenal lesions by imaging procedures was not always possible.
Catecholamine metabolites in ganglioneuroma.
TLDR
Elevations of VMA and HVA are consistent with a well-documented diagnosis of ganglioneuroma, but extreme elevations (> 3 x nl) should prompt careful serial evaluation for occult NB.
[A case of endocrinologically active retroperitoneal ganglioneuroma].
TLDR
A 27-year-old female complained of right upper abdominal pain and Computed tomography revealed a retroperitoneal tumor located between the right kidney and the vena cava, which was ganglioneuroma.

TLDR
Adrenal ganglioneuroma is an uncommon benign tumor that is revealed as a solid adrenal mass on CT scans and specific CT features such as calcification and lesion enhancement may simulate a primary adrenal carcinoma.

TLDR
This case provides evidence that, although rare, spontaneous malignant transformation of ganglioneuroma can occur and that the spindle cell component was of nerve sheath origin.

TLDR
The authors present a case of a 21-year-old woman who underwent resection of a retroperitoneal ganglioneuroma and developed spinal neuroblastoma 11 years later, and has survived 10 more years with only recent development of metastases.
Functionally active ganglioneuroma with increased plasma and urinary catecholamines and positive iodine 131-meta-iodobenzylguanidine scintigraphy.
TLDR
A case of secretory ganglioneuroma is reported, as demonstrated by the increased urinary excretion of the catecholamine metabolites HVA and VMA, increased plasma dopamine and epinephrine levels, and positive 131-I-MIBG scintigraphy.
Ganglioneuroma presenting with differentiated skeletal metastases. Report of a case
TLDR
The case of a child with retroperitoneal ganglioneuroma and cytodifferentiated skeletal metastases is reported, and the child is alive and well 2 years later without additional therapy, which can be explained by spontaneous cytomaturation within both primary and metastatic tumor.
