Abstract

Parapharyngeal tumours are frequently encountered in clinical practice and are often difficult to diagnose upon clinical examination due to the anatomic complexity of the region. We report a rare case of extracranial meningioma of the parapharyngeal space in a patient with no history of von Recklinghausen's disease, family history of meningioma or central neurofibromatosis (NF-2). The purpose of this report is to reiterate and emphasize the role of CT and MRI in the diagnosis of parapharyngeal masses, and to describe the characteristic radiological features of extracranial meningiomas.
