 A case of huge carotid body tumor(CBT)with 20-years-history is reported. MRI showed that the external carotid artery was totally encased by the tumor,while the common carotid artery and internal carotid artery passed by very closely to the margin of the tumor. Balloon matas test was negative with more than 60mmHg of stump pressure,and the cerebral blood flow(CBF)value was sufficient,which allowed the sacrification of the common carotid artery and/or internal carotid artery without vessel graft. Preoperative embolization of the external carotid artery was performed. Total resection was performed with uneventful postoperative course.
