Tumors of the Parapharyngeal Space

Authors: JOHN J. CONLEY MD, ALBERT A. CLAIRMONT MD

Abstract

ABSTRACT:A variety of tumors of the parapharyngeal space were operated upon during one training year at the Pack Medical Foundation, New York. These tumors characteristically present as a mass of the upper neck, behind the angle of the mandible and/or as a lateral pharyngeal mass bulging medially. Surgeons who operate in the parapharyngeal space must be thoroughly familiar with the complex anatomy of blood vessels, nerves, and muscles in this area and possess a thorough knowledge of the variety of tumors in this region of the head and neck.
