An internal bevel incision was made to raise a subperiosteal flap, performing full excisional biopsy of the lesion, which measured nearly 1 x 1 cm, followed by curettage of the surrounding areas to remove possible residues of granulomatous tissue, apicectomy and retrograde filling with MTA (Dentsply), which was prepared following the manufacturer's instructions (Figure 3).

She had been treated for a petrous apex cholesterol granuloma 20 years earlier, at which time she had undergone drainage of the granuloma via subtotal petrous apicectomy. When she carne to our facility approximately 20 years later, she had signs and symptoms consistent with a jugular paraganglioma, which was likely to have been present at the time of her initial presentation for the cholesterol granuloma.
