Kinshuck AJ, Agrawal S, Patel VM, Bishop PW, Jones PH - Int J Otolaryngol (2010)

Bottom Line: Lipomas are common soft tissue tumours, although their incidence in the nasopharynx is very low.A rarer variant of lipoma, chondrolipomas are benign mesenchymal tumours.An endonasal approach to excision has not been previously described.

ABSTRACT
In this case report, we describe the presentation and treatment of a patient with nasopharyngeal chondrolipoma. Lipomas are common soft tissue tumours, although their incidence in the nasopharynx is very low. A rarer variant of lipoma, chondrolipomas are benign mesenchymal tumours. They are formed by the proliferation of mature adipocytes and contain different amounts of mature cartilaginous tissue; Weiss "Enzinger and Weiss's soft tissue tumours", 4th ed: Mosby, St Louis; 2001 This represents the second reported case of a nasopharyngeal chondrolipoma. An endonasal approach to excision has not been previously described.

fig1: Large nasopharyngeal mass visualised on retraction of soft palate.

Mentions: Nasoendoscopy demonstrated a mass in the postnasal space. It was not possible to pass the scope beyond the mass due to its size. Oropharyngeal examination revealed a large smooth mass extending beyond the soft palate. It was clearly visible with the soft palate retracted (Figure 1).
