Abstract

Intrapericardial paragangliomas are rare tumors, typically located adjacent to or involving the left atrium. For initial detection, regional location of these extraadrenal tumors, and detection of distant metastases, MIBG scintigraphy is recommended. Dynamic contrast-enhanced CT or MR imaging can then provide detailed anatomic delineation before surgical resection.
