Abstract

Parapharyngeal tumors are less common 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 parapharyngeal space meningioma presenting as a cervical mass with encasement of cranial nerves giving tram track appearance and features on various imaging modalities [Radiographs, Ultrasound, Computed tomography (CT) scan and Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)].


  • Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:
    Clinicians and radiologists should be aware of the unusual location of meningioma (extra cranial para pharyngeal) with carotid artery and cranial nerve encasement.
