A functioning-desensitization paraganglioma which caused hemodynamic instability during tumoral resection: Report of a case
MetadataShow full item record
Paragangliomas are uncommon tumors arising from the neuroendocrine elements of the paraganglia. Their successful management is associated with many problems. We herein present the findings of a 22-year-old man in whom a paraganglioma was incidentally found and in which the clinical and previous operative behavior was functioning desensitization. As a result, preoperative medication was not performed; however, during the tumor resection the patient demonstrated hemodynamic instability.
