Abstract

Parapharyngeal space cysts, besides salivary gland origin may be derived from the first and dorsal portions of the second pharyngeal pouches. They are mucosal or epithelial lined structures with no external or visceral opening and always present on the lateral aspects of the nasopharyngeal wall. Two consecutive cases of parapharyngeal space cysts totally excised by transoral and transparotid routes are presented.
