Abstract

Duodenal gangliocytic paraganglioma is an extremely rare benign tumour which commonly located in the second part of duodenum. Patients can either presented with upper gastrointestinal bleeding, abdominal pain or symptomatic anaemia. It is frequently mistaken for gastrointestinal stromal tumour (GIST) or neuroendocrine neoplasm during upper endoscopy and on computed tomography (CT) imaging. The diagnosis is based on histopathological presence of epithelioid, spindle-shaped and ganglion-like cells. It can either be resected surgically or endoscopically with a clear margin. Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is preferred if the location, depth and lymph nodes status are favourable. Surgical excision is reserved for tumour not amenable for endoscopic resection. Adjuvant therapy is not indicated after complete resection of the tumour. We report a rare case of duodenal gangliocytic paraganglioma and review the latest literatures.
