Unusual mediastinal paraganglioma with single pulmonary metastasis: A case report
Background: Malignant paragangliomas are a real challenge for practitioners. They are rare complex tumours, very heterogeneous in their evolution and prognosis. Given the rarity of this group of tumours, there is no consensus on therapeutic management. surgical resection is considered the treatment of choice.
Case Description: We report a very rare case of a 73-year-old patient presenting a malignant non-functional mediastinal paraganglioma with a single pulmonary metastasis deemed unrespectable and treated with radiation therapy.
Conclusions: This study aims to highlight the use of radiotherapy as an interesting therapeutic option in the management of malignant mediastinal paragangliomas not suitable for surgery.
