Perivascular epitheloid cell tumors (PEComas) are rare tumors of malignant potential. There is no normal cell variant to these cells. The family is large and includes angiomyolipoma, clear cell "sugar" tumor amongst others. Imaging modalities are not very diagnostic. The diagnosis hence is often postoperative. A 55-year old female presented to us with ultrasonographic diagnosis of solid mass in the right infrarenal region. Contrast-enhanced computerized sonography (CECT) suggested paraganglioma or a soft tissue retroperitoneal tumor. Laparoscopic excision was successful. The rarity of this pathology and laparoscopic modality of excision prompted us to publish this report.
