Abstract:

Paragangliomas are relatively rare in an adults, with most arising from para‑aortic sympathetic chain. Paraganglioma localized at the extravesical pelvic cavity is extremely rare, only few case reports are published. We report a case of paravesical paraganglioma in a 45‑year‑old man who initially presented with irritable bladder and palpitations after voiding for 6 years and was being treated symptomatically for urinary tract infection and anxiety. Cross‑sectional imaging showed a paravesical mass and was treated by robotic excision of the mass.
