Ganglioneuroma is the benign representative of peripheral neuroblastic tumors, with localized and predominant thoracic presentations in older children. They often have an excellent outcome with surgery alone. A 12-year-old girl presented with an incidentally detected abdominal mass, which was clinicoradiologically a renal mass. Laparotomy revealed a mass adherent to the anterior surface of the right kidney. The mass was carefully dissected out, sacrificing a portion of the inferior vena cava. Histopathological diagnosis was that of a ganglioneuroma. She was kept under follow up.
