Ganglioneuroma is a rare tumor; it belongs to the group of neuroectodermal neoplasms. Usually it is found in young or pediatric patients, in retroperitoneal, mediastinic and cervical sympathetic ganglia. Authors relate about a very rare case in an adult patient, with a pelvic localization. They relate about the diagnosis, the result of the operation and the six years follow up. Authors want to point out the importance to know this rare patology for the differential diagnosis with all the pelvic diseases, expecially in female patient.
