Multimodality imaging of paragangliomas of the head and neck.

Insights Imaging 2019 Mar 4;10(1):29. Epub 2019 Mar 4.

University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, USA.

Paragangliomas arise from paraganglion cells which serve varied regulatory tasks in the body. When these cells demonstrate neoplasia within the head and neck, they typically present in characteristic locations including the carotid space, the jugular foramen, the middle ear, and along the course of the vagus nerve. The goal of this article is to review the relevant anatomy related to head and neck paragangliomas, as well as their typical imaging characteristics on cross-sectional imaging including CT, MR, ultrasound, and nuclear medicine studies.

Otolaryngol Clin North Am 2015 Jun 11;48(3):515-26. Epub 2015 Apr 11.

Department of Neurologic Surgery, Mayo Clinic School of Medicine, Mayo Clinic, 200 First Street Southwest, Rochester, MN 55905, USA; Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Mayo Clinic School of Medicine, 200 First Street Southwest, Rochester, MN 55905, USA. Electronic address:

Gamma Knife stereotactic radiosurgery (GKS) has become an important management strategy for an increasing number of patients with skull base tumors. For select patients with lateral skull base disorders, given the proximity to sensitive critical structures such as the brainstem, cranial nerves, and cochlea, this technology has emerged as a first-line treatment to achieve the paramount goals of long-term tumor control and maintenance of existing neurologic function. This article reviews the indications, technique, and results of GKS for the treatment of vestibular schwannoma and glomus jugulare tumors, and highlights our experience in treating these tumors at the Mayo Clinic.

(111)In-octreotide SPECT-CT in head and neck paragangliomas.

Rev Esp Med Nucl Imagen Mol 2015 Sep-Oct;34(5):321-4. Epub 2015 Apr 6.

Servicio de Medicina Nuclear, Hospital Meixoeiro, Vigo, Pontevedra, España.

Head and neck paragangliomas are rare neuroendocrine tumors expressing somatostatin receptors on their cell surface, particularly subtype 2. Due to this distinctive feature, images can be obtained in Nuclear Medicine using synthetic analogues of somatostatin, mainly octreotide, which allow selective display by planar scintigraphy, SPECT-CT or PET-CT imaging after radiolabeling with (111)In or (68)Ga. Three cases have been selected and presented from a series of patients that illustrate the utility of SPECT-CT studies with (111)In-octreotide in the diagnosis and monitoring of this type of tumor.

Purpose: Head and neck paragangliomas (HNPGLs) are rare tumours arising from autonomic nervous system ganglia. Although surgery offers the best chance of complete cure, there is associated morbidity due to the crucial location of these tumours. Radiotherapy arrests tumour growth and provides symptomatic improvement, but has long-term consequences. Read More

Paraganglioma presenting as cholesterol granuloma of the petrous apex.

Ear Nose Throat J 2013 Sep;92(9):430-4

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University of Minnesota, MMC 396, 420 Delaware Ave., SE, Minneapolis, MN 55455, USA.

We report the unique finding of a petrous apex cholesterol granuloma associated with a paraganglioma, also known as a glomus jugulare tumor, in a 52-year-old woman who presented to our department with pulsatile tinnitus, hearing loss, aural fullness, and disequilibrium. She had been treated for a petrous apex cholesterol granuloma 20 years earlier, at which time she had undergone drainage of the granuloma via subtotal petrous apicectomy. When she came to our facility approximately 20 years later, she had signs and symptoms consistent with a jugular paraganglioma, which was likely to have been present at the time of her initial presentation for the cholesterol granuloma.

Skull invaders: when surgical pathology and neuropathology worlds collide.

J Neuropathol Exp Neurol 2013 Jul;72(7):600-13

Department of Pathology, The University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, Aurora, Colorado, USA.

Skull and dura serve as effective barriers to penetration by most tumors, often preventing masses originating intracranially from extending into the contiguous bone and soft tissues, or those arising in head and neck regions from extending into the dura and brain tissue. We review our 15-year experience with extracranial tumors that had sufficiently invaded adjacent skull, dura, or brain from the "outside-in" to require a neurosurgeon to participate in the surgical resection and discuss our 40 cases in context with the literature. Sinonasal-origin tumors (n = 17) and cutaneous tumors (n = 10) were the most frequent skull-invaders. Read More
