Other Craniocervical Tumors
Gingrass et al. (1967) reported a recurrent tumor of the left temporal area just above the zygomatic arch in a 24-year-old male which was diagnosed initially as metastatic adenocarcinoma, probably of adrenal or renal origin. The slides were reviewed and the lesion rediagnosed as a malignant nonchromaffin paraganglioma or alveolar soft-part sarcoma. The age of the patient, history of antecedent trauma and pain, and the invasion of blood vessels by the tumor favor the latter diagnosis.
