The ­authors ­report the obser­va­tion of one ­case of ­vagal par­a­gan­glioma ­occurred in a ­young ­woman. The ­tumor man­i­fested ­itself as a ­left sub-­man­dib­ular tumes­cence; the ­very ­first diag­nostic ­approach was ­achieved ­through echog­raphy, ­which ­showed a ­mass ­behind the ­internal ­carotid ­artery and com­pressing the ­internal jug­ular ­vein. The fol­lowing exam­ina­tions, rep­re­sented by ­neck CT, NMR, angio­graphy and ­fine ­needle aspi­ra­tion ­initially ­directed ­towards the sus­pi­cion of chem­o­dec­toma. ­Only at oper­a­tion, the ana­tom­ical sit­u­a­tion of the ­tumor, ­which encap­su­lated the ­vagus ­nerve and the sub­se­quent ­results of the hys­to­log­ical exam­ina­tion ­revealed the cor­rect diag­nosis of ­vagal par­a­gan­glioma.
