Inflammatory pseudotumor of the nasopharynx is a rare diagnosis that is often misinterpreted as carcinoma or lymphoma. It has been referred to as a tumefactive fibroinflammatory lesion, idiopathic pseudotumor, and fibrosing inflammatory pseudotumor. We present a rare case of a 40-year-old African American female from Kenya with inflammatory pseudotumor of the nasopharynx with perineural spread of disease along the trigeminal nerve to discuss the diagnosis and treatment of such an uncommon entity.
