Abstract

An extra-adrenal pheochromocytoma is also known as a paraganglioma. We are reporting the case of a 68-year-old female patient with an extremely rare primary nonfunctioning hepatic paraganglioma without any clinical signs and symptoms. A CECT scan of whole abdomen was done which showed a huge well defined peripherally enhancing fluid density cystic lesion measuring 14 cm 14 cm 12 cm with internal enhancing septations and few foci of calcification involving V to VIII segments of right lobe of liver which was compressing and displacing portal vein, its right branch, common bile duct, gall bladder. Mass was also compressing and displacing right kidney inferiorly. Laparotomy was done and sample of cyst wall sent for histopathology. After immunohistochemistry a diagnosis of paraganglioma was confirmed.
