Abstract

Carotid body tumors are rare and slow-growing neurogenic tumors for which surgery is currently the standard of care. However, because of the rare presentation, little is known about the preoperative management. This case report describes a 72-year-old patient presenting with a swelling in the neck. The relevant literature is also reviewed.
