  • Baroreflex failure after chemodectoma resection We present a case of baroreflex failure secondary to a unilateral injury of the glossopharyngeal nerve.
  • The patient was operated for a left-sided chemodectoma in the carotid body.
  • The diagnosis was baroreflex failure secondary to unilateral injury of the glossopharyngeal nerve.
  • The case reported herein illustrates the fact that the presence of a bilateral injury is not essential for the occurrence of this disorder.

2. Pacheco-Ojeda L: Malignant carotid body tumors: report of three cases. Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol; 2001 Jan;110(1):36-40

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The first was in a 40-year-old man who presented with pulmonary metastases 6 years after resection of a CBT.
  • He was treated with chemotherapy and interferon, but died with disseminated disease 2 years later.
  • This lesion was completely resected, and a shunt and reconstruction with a saphenous vein graft were performed.
  • Pathology revealed a malignant chemodectoma with invasion to 2 of the 5 lymph nodes removed.
  • Radiotherapy (50 Gy) was given after the operation.
  • She is well and free of disease 68 months after the resection.
  • On computed tomography, the tumor extended to the infratemporal fossa with no bone involvement.
  • The lesion was embolized with a 40% reduction in vascularity.
  • At surgical exploration, the tumor involved the sternocleidomastoid muscle and the lymph nodes at levels II and III, and the internal carotid artery could not be dissected free at the skull base, so only a partial resection was performed.
  • Current multidisciplinary treatments have been unsuccessful in controlling disseminated disease.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Lung Cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Primary pulmonary paraganglioma with Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • Extra-adrenal paragangliomas are uncommon tumors arising from neuroectodermal-derived paraganglionic tissue.
  • There are very few case reports on primary pulmonary paraganglioma in the literature.
  • We present the case of a 21-year-old man who was treated with chemotherapy for Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • Only a partial response was noted so he underwent additional chemotherapy and involved field radiotherapy.
  • Subsequent bronchoscopic biopsy showed paraganglioma and the patient underwent a left lower lobectomy.
