1. 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.
  • [Title] Malignant carotid body tumors: report of three cases.
  • The aim of the current report was to describe 3 cases of malignant carotid body tumor (CBT) and to review the literature.
  • 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.
  • The second case was in a 56-year-old woman who had a 5-cm, fixed, hard mass in the upper aspect of the neck and a paralysis of the left vocal cord.
  • 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.
  • The third case was in a 61-year-old woman who presented with an 8-cm nontender, hard, immobile mass in the left upper neck that displaced the left wall of the oropharynx toward the midline.
  • 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.
  • Locoregional control is usually obtained with complete primary tumor resection and lymphadenectomy and eventual radiotherapy.
  • Current multidisciplinary treatments have been unsuccessful in controlling disseminated disease.

2. Kavakli K, Ozturk M, Ongoru O, Gürkök S, Genc O: Primary pulmonary paraganglioma with Hodgkin's lymphoma. Thorac Cardiovasc Surg; 2009 Sep;57(6):375-7
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.
  • PET-CT showed pathological activity in the lung parenchyma.
  • Subsequent bronchoscopic biopsy showed paraganglioma and the patient underwent a left lower lobectomy.

Hazardous Substances Data Bank. IMATINIB MESYLATE .

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • A curious association of three rare tumours was described by Carney in 1977.
  • 'Carney's triad' characteristically includes multifocal pulmonary chondroma, gastric stromal sarcoma and extra-adrenal paraganglioma.
