Ganglioneuroma of the Neck: A case report.


Ganglioneuroma (GN) is benign tumor arising from sympathetic ganglion which commonly occurs at posterior mediastinum, retroperitoneum and adrenal gland. Rarely, it may also present in cervical region as slow growing painless neck mass. Here we present a 7 years old female child with 4 years duration of slow growing left lateral neck mass. After proper investigations the patient was prepared & taken to the operation room for complete excision of the mass. Post operation biopsy settled the definitive diagnosis as Ganglioneuroma. Thus ganglioneuroma should be considered in patients with neck mass.
