Thirty per cent of head and neck paragangliomas are jugulotympanic tumours. Jugulotympanic paragangliomas (JTPGL) are slow growing neuro‐endocrine tumours that are benign in almost all cases. Despite the benign nature, symptomatology can be considerable and is mainly caused by growth towards delicate surrounding structures such as cranial nerves (CNs) and large vessels. However, their indolent growth pattern makes it difficult to predict if and when these tumours will become clinically apparent; some tumours cause CN damage or invade the intracranial space, while others show spontaneous regression.It is due to the rarity of paragangliomas and their variable yet potentially debilitating clinical presentation that the management of these tumours remains a matter
