A case of duodenal gangliocytic paraganglioma (DGP) in a 67-year-old woman is presented. The DGP arose in the second part of the duodenum. Although most of the reported cases of DGP are considered benign, in the present case, we found regional lymph nodes containing metastatic tumor. Previous reports have documented metastases containing only epithelioid cells. The current case demonstrates metastatic tumor in regional lymph nodes containing all 3 of the DGP components (spindle cells, ganglion-like cells, and epithelioid cells).
