Abstract
Paragangliomas are commonly seen in adrenal medulla, organs of zuckerkandl, carotid body. Inguinal region is an unusual site for paragangliomas. We report a case of non-functional extra adrenal inguinal paragangliomas occurring in 22year old female patient, resident of Dakshin Kannada district, who presented with left sided inguinal swelling since 20yrs and lower abdominal pain in the past 3months. The surgeons suspected of inguinal hernia, the radiological imaging revealed mass suspected to be of mesenchymal origin probably arising from nerve sheath. The hematological investigations were within normal limits. On exploration of left inguinal region, a mass was found adjacent to round ligament, the diagnosis of “Extra Adrenal Paraganglioma of the round ligament” was made based on histopathological report.
