Paragangliomas arising as primary neoplasms in the intracranial portion of the central nervous system are relatively uncommon and only have been rarely reported. We report a case of apparent primary paraganglioma arising in the left cerebellar hemisphere in an 11-year-old girl who presented with a 6-month history of headaches. The tumor was marked by a nested architectural pattern (zellballen), delimited by S-100-positive sustentacular cells. Morphologic and immunohistochemical features of the neoplasm are discussed and literature is reviewed regarding involvement of the central nervous system by paraganglioma.
