Horacio J Asbun, MD, Andres J Sosa, MD, Jorge Farell, MD, Jhon A Stauffer, MD, Steven Bowers, MD. Mayon Clinic

A 36-year-old male with nonspecific abdominal symptoms and a 4.5 cm mass in left retroperitoneal position, incidentally found during work up.

Paranganglioma was ruled out during the preoperative workup, and a percutaneous CT biopsy demonstrated a Schwannoma.

With a minimal invasive approach, the mass was safely dissected from the retroperitoneal structures and peripheral neural pedicles, without complications.
