Gangliocytic paraganglioma (GP) is a rare condition and the available data consist mainly of case descrip- tions. The lesion was first described by Dahl et al. in 1957 (1). The term GP was introduced by Kepes and Zcharias and is derived from his histological features of neurendocrine tumor, paraganglioma and ganglio- neuroma. The tumor is typically located in the second or third part of the duodenum (2).
