Pri­mary malig­nant neo­plasms of par­a­pha­ryn­geal ­space are uncom­mon. The major­ity of par­a­pha­ryn­geal ­space ­tumors are ­benign.
Neu­ro­gen­ic ­tumors are the sec­ond com­mon­est ­tumors of the par­a­pha­ryn­geal ­space but malig­nant ­nerve ­sheath ­tumors are extreme­ly ­rare.
We ­present ­here a ­case of “Malig­nant ­nerve ­sheath ­tumor of the par­a­pha­ryn­geal ­space” as a ­rare ­entity. Our ­patient was suc­cess­ful­ly treat­ed by exci­sion of the ­tumor by the trans­cer­vi­cal sub­man­dib­u­lar ­approach fol­lowed by post­op­er­a­tive radio­ther­a­py.
