Abstract

The authors here present a rare case of angiomyolipoma arising in the oropharynx. The tumor was found in a 55-year-old man, not associated with tuberous sclerosis. Histopathologic examination of the tumor revealed an admixture of numerous smooth muscle cells, mature adipose tissue and numerous thin –walled capillaries and thick-walled vessels. Both histological and immunohistochemical findings were typical for tumors of the mucocutaneous angiomyolipoma group.

Keywords: Angiomyolipoma, Oropharynx, Tumor, Excision, Lateral pharyngotomy.
