A ­case of med­i­as­tinal par­a­gan­glioma in asso­ci­a­tion ­with bilat­eral ­carotid ­body ­tumors is pre­sented. Char­ac­ter­istic radio­log­ical find­ings ­included a hypo­in­tense ­signal in T1-­weighted, a hyper­in­tense ­signal in T2-­weighted mag­netic res­o­nance (MR) ­images and a vas­cular enhance­ment pat­tern in ­dynamic con­trast ­enhanced MR ­imaging. ­Thus, ­feeding ves­sels ­could be ­depicted non­in­va­sively. The impor­tance of ­family ­screening in ­affected indi­vid­uals is ­stressed, as a hered­i­tary ­form of the dis­ease ­exists in ­which mul­tiple par­a­gan­gli­omas are ­common.
