A 41-year-old man presented with a 2.5cm, paracaval, sub-duodenal mass incidentally discovered during an abdominal ultrasound. The patient suffered from occasional hypertensive crises. Clinical and laboratoristic evalutation suggested the diagnosis of catecholamine-secreting tumor, i.e., paraganglioma. After an adequate preoperative antiadrenergic treatment, the lesion was easily removed by using a laparoscopic approach.
