A case is presented of a voluminous tumor of the carotid body which was excised together with the three carotid arteries, the internal jugular vein, and the cervical sympathetic. Excellent results were obtained and continued during a 14-year period of observation. The success is attributed to the fact that the operation was carried out in two stages. At the first stage only ligation of the common carotid artery and the internal jugular vein was performed.
