Carotid body tumors arise from the embryonic neural crest. These tumors are mostly benign, and they rarely show character. Bifurcation of the carotid body cells originates from a common carotid paraganglion; a tumoral mass lateral to the carotid bifurcation is usually found in the neck. A pathologic feature of these tumors is that they have a tendency to wrap because they are not treated with the external and internal carotid arteries. In our clinic, we operated on a patient who had been diagnosed with carotid body tumor. After removal of the internal carotid artery, the mass flow due to a decrease in the light of literature used to evaluate the importance of flowmetry carotid surgery.
