Abstract

Abstract Frequently, I1 have pointed out how limited is the experience of even the most experienced among us with regard to the knowledge and behavior of glomus jugulare tumors and how unwise it is to be dogmatic or arbitrary with respect to some of the unsolved clinical problems: I. Metastasis: How frequently does it occur and to what areas? II. Nomenclature: How shall these tumors ultimately be designated? III. Therapy: What can be adjudged a rational method of treatment? I. Metastasis The time has come, I believe, to examine the concept that carotid-body-like tumors, or by whatever term one designates these tumors, are benign and do not metastasize. In 1954, Figi and Weisman2 were of the opinion that those instances of metastasis reported in the literature were probably coincidental occurrences of chemodectoma and carotid-body tumors. Lattes and Waltner3 in 1949 reported what they regarded as a metastasis of References 1. Rosenwasser, H.: Glomus Jugulare Tumor of Middle Ear , Laryngoscope 62:623-633 ( (June) ) 1952.Crossref 2.
