Paragangliomas, also known as chemodectomas or glomus tumors, arise from nonchromaffin paraganglia or glomus bodies. 1 They may be unilateral, bilateral, or multicentric, although they are more commonly associated with a glomus tumor in another location. Paragangliomas also have a familial distribution indicating a hereditary pattern that appears to be autosomal dominant.
