Abstract

Intravagal paragangliomas are rare tumors of neural crest origin. These tumors are usually benign with few reports of metastases or aggressive behavior. One case of Intravagal paraganglioma metastatic to a regional lymph node is described and the diagnosis and management of these tumors are discussed. The reports of 14 other cases with regional or distal metastases are reviewed.
