We report a case of concomitant, recurrent carotid body tumor and recurrent bilateral glomus jugulare tumors, with extensive intrajugular-venous extension. The patient's family history confirms the previously reported familial occurrence of chemodectomas. The value of preoperative angiographic evaluation is emphasized in establishing a diagnosis and formulating a therapeutic approach. Recurrence of chemodectomas after appropriate therapy, although unusual, was present in all three previously treated sites in this patient.
