Abstract: Jugulotympanic paragangliomas (JTPs) are rarely encountered benign diseases derived embryonically from the autonomic nervous system. Although JTPs may originate extracranially or intracranially, little has been reported in the literature about large JTPs involving several anatomical structures in the craniofacial regions. Management of large JTPs is controversial. The authors describe a large JTP invading the cranial bones and extending through the neck to the left clavicle. Doppler sonography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging were performed preoperatively to confirm the diagnosis. Combined therapeutic approaches were undertaken with preoperative selective embolization followed by craniofacial resection in cooperation with neurosurgeons. © 2011 International Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
