A case of carotid body tumor

Arif Şanlı1, Mehmet Eken, Sedat Aydın, Mustafa Paksoy, Mehmet Yıldırım

A thirty-five-year-old woman had an asymptomatic,
slow growing mass that pushed the right tonsilla palatina
and was pulsatile in the oropharyngeal region.
Magnetic resonance imaging showed a vascular mass
at the carotid bifurcation, causing displacement of the
external and internal carotid arteries. The diagnosis of
a carotid body tumor was confirmed by magnetic resonance
angiography. Surgery included a subadventitial
dissection at the carotid bifurcation, preserving the
hypoglossal and vagal nerves. The patient developed
loss of function of the tenth cranial nerve postoperatively.
After a year follow-up period there was no
change in the function of the tenth cranial nerve.
