Transoral laser resection of a large schwannoma in the retropharyngeal space

Abstract

Introduction: The contents of the retropharyngeal space are limited to fat and retropharyngeal nodes. Primary tumors originating from the retropharyngeal space are rare, therefore, the existence of schwannoma in the retropharyngeal space is infrequent.

Method: This paper describes a case of a large schwannoma of the retropharyngeal space excised transorally with the use of co2laser. This lesion measured about 6/6 x 3/5.

Result: No peri-or post-operative complications were encountered. The procedure allowed quick resumption of an oral diet and a return to normal activity for the patient.

Conclusion: This is, to our knowledge, the first report of this technique used in the excision of a large retropharyngeal space schwannoma.
