Abstract

Angioleiomyoma of the pharynx is extremely rare. We report a case of pedunculated angioleiomyoma originating from the posterior nasopharyngeal wall, in a 77-year-old man. Contrast-enhanced CT revealed a well-demarcated, smooth, spherical, pedunculated, solid mass with heterogeneous intense enhancement in the nasopharynx. As a result, nasopharyngeal angioleiomyoma should be included in the differential diagnosis of a pedunculated, solid nasopharyngeal mass with heterogeneous intense enhancement.
