The neurogenic tumors in the abdomen and pelvis are uncommon neoplasms that share similar clinical and imaging features, therefore the location, composition and shape are crucial to differentiate them. They commonly involve the sympathetic ganglia in the paraspinal retroperitoneum or arise from the adrenal gland. These tumors are usually asymptomatic, unless they grow large enough to determinate compression of adjacent structures. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings are important to differentiate the benign from the malignant lesions and to chose the best approach.
