Paraganglioma is a rare type of neuroendocrine tumor with the ability of neuropeptide and catecholamine secretion. The most common locations of these neoplasms are head and neck regions, retroperitoneal para-aortic and paracaval, renal, and urinary bladder sympathetic plexuses; abdominal paragangliomas at other sites are extremely uncommon.

Case presentation

A 66-year-old male patient was admitted to our institution with a diagnosis of an infundibular pericholecystic mass. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy and pericholecystic mass radical exeresis was performed; histology achieved a diagnosis of paraganglioma located in Calot’s triangle.


The report shows an extremely rare case of an extra-adrenal abdominal paraganglioma, successfully managed with a laparoscopic approach.
