A 54-year-old woman was diagnosed with a large paraganglioma in the left paraaortic area, extending into the aortopulmonary window and up to a right-sided superior vena cava. The tumor was treated with repeated embolizations that failed to reduce its size. Complete surgical excision was achieved utilizing cardiopulmonary bypass. The patient made a full recovery.
