Presented herein is a case report of successful surgical management of a 34-year-old female patient diagnosed with carotid chemodectoma, a relatively rare pathology vascular surgeons come across and have to deal with. A comprehensive examination (including duplex scanning of cervical arteries, multispiral CT angiography) revealed a 7x8 cm cervical tumour completely invading the walls of both the external and internal carotid arteries, thus requiring their resection, followed by prosthetic replacement of the internal carotid artery with a synthetic graft. The postoperative period turned out uneventful. On the 7th postoperative day, the patient was discharged home from hospital in a satisfactory condition with good laboratory and haemodynamic values.

KEY WORDS: carotid chemodectoma, prosthetic repair of the internal carotid artery.
