Glomus jugulare are benign tumors that are slow growing, but locally aggressive. The tumor takes its origin from the paraganglionic cells in the adventitia of the jugular bulb. It spreads along pathways of least resistance like the infralabyrinthine and infracochlear cell tracts toward the vertical infratubal segment of the internal carotid artery (ICA), along the petrous segment and then toward the nasopharynx. The medial wall of the jugular bulb acts as a barrier to tumor spread. Once this barrier is breached, the tumor spreads to involve the lower cranial nerves and can also spread intracranially. Inferiorly, it spreads to the neck through the carotid foramen and the carotid sheath. The management of these tumors has been debated with various options being observation, surgery, and cyber knife radiosurgery.
