Summary
Paragangliomas are benign neoplasms that come up from the autonomic nervous system and the related paraganglia. Though benign, they’ve been proven to own metastatic potential. Involvement of the backbone is uncommon. Even rarer is taken into account the involvement of the cervical backbone. We report a case of a affected person with a historical past of an extra-adrenal non-functional paraganglioma of the jugular foramen which was initially handled with intra-arterial embolization. After a Three-year disease-free follow-up, the affected person was introduced with signs of spinal wire compression resulting from spinal metastases in C2 and C3 vertebrae. The affected person was then handled with surgical decompression and exterior beam radiation. Therapeutic administration with extra therapy choices is now underneath dialogue by a multidisciplinary crew. Paraganglioma of the jugular foramen with spinal metastasis is an unusual presentation the place elevated doctor consciousness and long-term follow-up are necessary for all sufferers with historical past of paraganglioma.
