ABSTRACT

Introduction: Parotid gland tumor with extension to the parapharyngeal space is a rare condition. The aim of this study is to report an extremely rare condition of deep lobe parotid gland tumor involving the parapharyngeal space.

Case Report: A 49-year-old female presented with a large growth on the left side of the face, which enlarged gradually over a period of 10 years. Radiological investigations determined the exact location and extent of the tumor. Complete resection was performed with a favorable outcome.

Conclusion: Pleomorphic adenoma with parapharyngeal extension is a rare but difficult to be managed benign tumor of the salivary glands. However, in selected cases, the submandibular transcervical approach without an osteotomy can be safe.
