Abstract

We describe a case of retropharyngeal solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) in a 46-year-old female patient. Total removal of the tumor without any complications was performed by transoral surgery. Intraoral resection of retropharyngeal SFT can be preoperatively performed by meticulous assessment of the extent and vasculature of the tumor with radiological guidance.
