Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Paragangliomas are neuroendocrine tumors that originate from extra-adrenal chromaffin cells. The trachea is an unusual site for paragangliomas. A 29-years-old female was admitted to our clinic with complaints of recurrent hemoptysis and dyspnea, and a 1.5x1.3 cm mass in the posterior wall of the trachea, which was subsequently diagnosed as a paraganglioma. In this report, we presented the 11th case of tracheal paraganglioma, a rare benign tracheal tumor, and reviewed the medical literature.
