Introduction: Retroperitoneal paragangliomas are rare extraadrenal pheochromocytomas that can involve major vascular structures. Results and discussion: A case of periaortic catecholamine-secreting paraganglioma was reviewed and literature search performed to summarize the current surgical management of this disease process. Conclusion: Resection for cure of retroperitoneal paragangliomas with vascular reconstruction can be performed with acceptable morbidity and mortality with the use of current vascular techniques.
