Paraganglioma is a rare tumor of neuroectodermal origin derived from the autonomic nervous system. A 52-year-old male patient, rural origin with a health history, comes to the office. The patient attended the consultation, reporting that for more than 6 months he had an increase in volume in the left lateral region of the neck, which was progressively increasing in size, without presenting pain. An incision biopsy was performed, which confirmed a seromatous papillary angioendothelioma; After excerilysis, he presented dehiscence of the wound and an increase in the size of the lesion in the form of an ulcerated lesion of more than 10cm, for which he was referred to the Oncological Hospital of Santiago de Cuba, a center where his registration was decided to evaluate the start of cancer-specific treatment . In the examination of the lamina a ganglioma is diagnosed histopathologically, suggesting study in a national reference center. Surgical treatment was applied. The treatment of choice was surgery with its prior embolization. Long-term follow-up of the patient was recommended due to the high recurrent risk of illness.
