Epidermoid carcinoma and angiofibroma are the commonly diagnosed lesions of the nasopharynx. Less common are unusual tumors of epithelial origin as well as those from endothelial and mesenchymal precursors. Otolaryngologists must be knowledgeable in the literature associated with these tumors to facilitate early diagnosis and to institute appropriate therapy. Cases of verrucous carcinoma, inverted papilloma, adenoid cystic carcinoma, and extramedullary plasmacytoma are presented. Current literature is reviewed and accepted modes of treatment are outlined.
