sup] Parapharyngeal space
tumors can be completely resected by an endoscopic-assisted transoral approach, even in cases with tumors lying lateral to the ICA.
In parapharyngeal space
it can cause oropharyngeal swelling, odynophagia, difficulty in breathing, cervical swelling, neurological deficit like hoarseness, slurring of speech, weakness of shoulder, blurring of vision and multiple cranial nerve palsy .
The parapharyngeal space
has also been referred to in the literature as the lateral pharyngeal, peripharyngeal, pharyngomaxillary, pterygopharyngeal, pterygomandibular, and pharyngomasticatory space, and its boundaries have been described with more variation than those of any other space of the neck.

Inferiorly, it was bulging into the right parapharyngeal space
The incidence of retropharyngeal abscess after Laryngeal Mask Airway (LMA) insertion is rare, while the extension of the abscess into the parapharyngeal space

extends from the skull base to the level of hyoid bone.
Infection in the parapharyngeal space

MRI demonstrated a 50 x 46-mm cystic lesion that had advanced from the left parotid gland to the parapharyngeal space
Computer tomography (CT) scan of the neck was performed to exclude any underlying parapharyngeal space
