Figure 2: The patient was positioned supine-lateral with head slightly extended (a) and skin incision along the posterior border of sternocleidomastoid was made extending laterally (b) The sternocleidomastoid was draped around the tumor and pushed superiorly (c) which was dissected (d) and the lateral border of tumor lifted off the skin (e) Then, sternocleidomastoid was dissected along its inferior surface and pulled laterally to make space between tumor and muscle (f). The carotid artery and internal jugular vein were pushed anteromedially, and the swelling extending superiorly till thyroid cartilage and inferiorly till thoracic inlet (g). The near-total excision of tumor was done leaving behind a capsule along the posterior trunk of brachial plexus (h)
