Paragangliomas are extra-adrenal pheochromocytomas that are often located in the retroperitoneum along the aorta. Although laparoscopic resection is recommended for adrenal pheochromocytomas, few laparoscopic resections for paragangliomas have been reported. We describe the presentation and imaging findings of four patients with periarotic paraganglioma. Laparoscopic resection was successfully performed in three of the four patients; the fourth patient required conversion to an open procedure. This report adds to a growing number of cases documenting that laparoscopic resection of paragangliomas is safe and feasible.
