Aim(s): We present five different phenotypes of paraganglioma.
Materials and methods: A series of five patients (4 females/1 male), aged between 22 and 51 years. were diagnosed with paragangliomas, based on histopathological examination and immunohistochemistry performed after surgery. A clinical, biological and pathological analysis of the cases was performed.
