Synopsis: 
Paragangliomas are rare, benign vascular tumours that can present in the head and neck region with a wide clinical spectrum. The clinical presentation and management approaches are examined from a Jamaican perspective.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Paragangliomas are slow-growing tumours that present with varied clinical spectra. Early recognition is paramount in achieving reduced morbidity and mortality. There is a paucity of data regarding head and neck paragangliomas (HNPGs) in the Caribbean literature. This study aimed to reflect the clinical experience in the management of HNPGs at two Jamaican tertiary referral centres: the Kingston Public Hospital (KPH) and the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI).
