CASE REPORT: We present a case of a 51-year-old male with histologically proved malignant paraganglioma in the
hypopharynx. The patient presented with body weight loss, dysphagia and productive bloody sputum. A necrotic
brownish mass was coughed out during admission.
DISCUSSION: Computed tomography (CT) scan showed a lobulated tumor arising from the posterior wall of the
hypopharynx with blurred retropharyngeal fat plane and heterogeneous enhancement. Prominent lymph nodes at
bilateral jugular chain and left retropharyngeal space were also noted. Histology of the coughed out necrotic mass
showed paraganglioma with atypical features. The patient underwent radiotherapy two months later.
