Paragangliomas are rare neuroendocrine tumors with 500 to 1600 new cases in the United States each year. The clinical presentation may range from asymptomatic to the classic triad of episodic diaphoresis, headache, and palpitations. Surgery is the hallmark of treatment when tumors are amenable to resection. When patients are found to have metastases, systemic therapies may be employed. In this case report, we present a patient found to have a large retroperitoneal paraganglioma with nodal metastases.
