Abstract

Approximately 10% of the tumors from chromaffin cells occur at extra adrenal sites [1]. Extra adrenal pheochromocytomas are known as paragangliomas. Primary paraganglioma of the urinary bladder is rare making up less than 0.05% of all bladder neoplasms [2]. It has been postulated that bladder paragangliomas arise from Embryonic rests of chromaffin cells within the bladder wall. They are commonly situated at the dome or the trigone of the bladder [2,3]. The most common symptoms are paroxysmal hypertension headache, sweating and palpitation [4]. The other symptoms commonly reported is haematuria (50-60%) [5], though this is not specific for paraganglioma.
