Tumors of the carotid body are rare paragangliomas originating from sympathetic fibres of the carotid bifurcation. Growth is slow and they frequently become symptomatic through local mechanical compression of neighbouring vascular and neural structures. Anesthesia for the removal of carotid body tumour poses numerous challenges to the anaesthesiologist with an increased risk of perioperative morbidity and mortality.
