PMID:  6954936     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A single case of an extra-adrenal paraganglioma removed at laparotomy from the falciform ligament of a 16 year-old girl is reported. Whilst extra-adrenal paragangliomata have been frequently documented in specific sites in relation to the vascular axis, the occurrence of these tumours in other areas is rare. This is the first report of a paraganglioma occurring within the falciform ligament in the midline in apposition to the anterior abdominal wall.
