Carotid body tumor (CBT), the most common tumor of the carotid bifurcation, presents as a pulsatile mass. Cervical sympathetic chain (CSC) schwannomas are slow growing lesions originating from myelin-producing Schwann cells. They may appear pulsatile due to the displacement of vascular structures by the non-vascular mass and thus may mimic a CBT. A case of CSC schwannoma masquerading as CBT in a 25-year-old woman is presented and discussed here.

Zoster occurred during filgrastim therapy but the symptoms were alleviated rapidly in the course of therapy. We conclude that granulocyte colony-stimulating factor therapy helped symptom alleviation and accelerated the recovery fromherpes zoster in our chemotherapy-treated patients.
