Abstract

Paragangliomas are rare tumours of the head and neck and are a diagnostic challenge. Two cases of paragangliomas arising from the vagus are being reported. In the first case, an angiogram raised the possibility of intravagal tumour and exploration followed by biopsy confirmed the diagnosis. In the second case, it was a diagnostic surprise where exploration was done on a clinical suspicion of parotid swelling and on the table, the swelling was found to arise from the vagus nerve pushing the parotid gland laterally.
