Paragangliomas are rare and usually benign well vascularized neuroendocrine tumors. They develop from diffuse neuroendocrine system cells. They may present an extensive growth and compromise vital neurovascular structures in the neck, such as carotid arteries. The main treatment for carotid body paragangliomas is surgical resection, which can be difficult and challenging in case of adherence to the carotid wall. We report the case of a 30-year-old woman, who was admitted to our department with a pulsatile and painless neck tumor which had grown slowly. CT scan confirmed the presence of a tumor measuring 30.7 mm × 20.8 mm invading the carotid bifurcation and the internal carotid artery. The neck tumor had been successfully resected, and paraganglioma was diagnosed by histological examination of the surgical specimen. The postoperative course was uneventful.
