The article deals with a rare clinical case of a combination of two pathological processes in the area of the bifurcation of carotid arteries, i.e. carotid paraganglioma and critical atherosclerotic stenosis of the internal carotid artery. The first clinical manifestation of atherosclerotic stenosis was cerebral infarction. The additional examination was followed by surgical treatment – removal of the carotid paraganglioma and simultaneous eversion carotid endarterectomy. The postoperative period was uneventful. In the available literature similar combinations are mentioned only sporadically.

KEY WORDS: carotid paraganglioma, atherosclerosis, stenosis of the internal carotid artery, surgical treatment.
