Parapharyngeal space lesions account for only 0.5% of head and neck tumours. A 63-year-old male presented primary pleomorphic adenomas arising de novo from minor salivary glands in the parapharyngeal space. We describe the clinical features, pathology, radiological findings and treatment of this lesion. The goal when presented with such a tumour is a correct diagnosis and the in toto excision of the tumor to avoid any recurrence.
