 A case of a carotid body tumor is reported.

 A woman, aged 35, complained of swelling in the right side of the neck with a sudden onset of bleaching of the right half of the face during physical exercises.

 The examination revealed a definite tumefaction in the right side of the neck that seemed to recede in size with exertion of finger pressure. Visualization of the carotid artery confirmed the presence of the tumor. Under a low-blood-pressure anesthesia the tumor was removed surgically.
