Semih ÖNCEL*, Ahmet KIZILAY*, Yaşar ÇOKKESER*, Davut AKTAŞ* Orhan ÖZTURAN* 




Carotid body tumors are found on the lateral neck, frequently in the carotid bifurcation. They originate from paraganglionic cells of carotid body, which is located in the carotid bifurcation. Two cases, operated in our department in this year, were reviewed together with three cases operated previously, in the light of literature. Carotid body tumors should be included in the differential diagnosis of lateral neck masses and examination should include Doppler USG and angiography if necessary.

Key words: Carotid body, surgical excision.
