Retroperitoneal ganglioneuroma (RGN) is a very rare entity especially in female older children and adolescents. It most often manifests as an asymptomatic mass. The relative rarity of this tumor in conjunction with the lack of definitive imaging findings makes its preoperative diagnosis difficult and is usually based on histopathological findings after surgical excision. We report a case of RGN, and suggest its consideration as one of the differential diagnosis in patients with abdominal pain.
