A 72 years old non smoker patient had PET-CT exploration for left lung cancer. It highlighted an unexpected sub diaphragmatic fixation. The abdominal CT scan highlighted a small size formation, hyper vascular, located at the right side of the abdominal aorta, close to the ostium of the inferior mesenteric artery. The diagnosis of paraganglioma of the Zuckerk and l body was suspected and confirmed by resection of the tumor under laparoscopy.
