Abstract

A carotid body tumour is a rare presentation of an extra-adrenal pheochromocytoma. They commonly present with asymptomatic neck masses, and careful preoperative evaluation is required to find out the functional and vascular status of these tumours. We report three cases of carotid body paraganglioma, their evaluation, management and the final outcome.
