Excision of a Retroperitoneal Paraganglioma (As a Incidental Finding) in a 60yr Old Female Under General Anaesthesia

Amarjeet D. Patil and Sunita A. Patil

Paragangliomas are tumors derived from specialized chemoreceptor tissue thought to be of neural crest origin outside the adrenal medulla.

In an previously undiagnosed and hence preoperatively unprepared case, the unexpected encounter of paraganglioma in the operating room, may lead to life-threatening complications during surgical resection under anaesthesia and its management is a challenge to the skill of the anaesthesiologist.

Here we present an undiagnosed case who developed severe hypertension, arrhythmia and subsequent hypotension under general anaesthesia.
