Abstract:
Atypical adenolymphoma and glomus caroticum tumour: a rare coincidence. We describe the rare simulta- neous appearance of an atypical adenolymphoma with a glomus caroticum tumour on the same side of the neck in a middle-aged man. This case report is the first to describe this coexistence. Due to the atypical, cyst-like presentation of the Warthin’s tumour, a final diagnosis was made only after surgical resection and histopathological examination. Both the adenolymphoma and glomus caroticum tumour were successfully removed surgically.
