Transoral approach to a huge neurofibroma of the parapharyngeal space: a case report

Enver Altaş1, Nesrin Gürsan, Harun Üçüncü

Neurofibroma of the parapharyngeal space accounts
for less than 2% of all parapharyngeal space neoplasms.
A 38-year-old man presented with complaints
of snoring and left-sided nasal obstruction. Medical history
also revealed numerous huge skin neurofibromas
and multiple café au lait spots all over the body.
Pharyngeal endoscopic examination disclosed a firm,
nonpulsatile submucosal mass, pushing the left pharyngeal
region approximately 5 cm medially, and
extending to the inferior part of the epiglottis. The tumor
was removed by transoral excision without any subsequent
complications. Histological and immunohistochemical
examinations revealed a neurofibroma.

Keywords: Neurofibroma/surgery; pharyngeal neoplasms/surgery.
