Summary

A case of benign nonchromaffin paraganglioma of the duodenum is reported. The nomenclature and classification of neurogenic neoplasms involving the small intestine are discussed. These neoplasms can be divided into those originating from the nerve sheath and the neuroblastic tumors of the sympathetic system (and chromaffin system).

The clinical picture is that of upper intestinal hemorrhage and obstruction.
