Paraganglioma is a rare tumor which originates from paraganglia tissue from neural crest. Bladder paraganglioma is suggested to be from crommaffin cells by the remains of the embryological cells. In this report, we aimed to discuss the literature by a case of bladder paraganglioma. A 39 year old male applied to our clinic with gross hematuria. A 2x2 cm mass was revealed in urinary ultrasound. Paraganglioma was found in the resection specimen and partial cystectomy was performed to the patient. A six month follow up revealed no recurrences. Even though bladder paraganglioma is a rare disease, it should be kept in mind for differential diagnosis. [Cukurova Med J 2013; 38(4.000): 794-799]
