At the oropharyngeal exploration soft palate deformity can be seen. In otoscopy there is a tubal blockage, the TAC determined the extent and invasion. The MRI provides sagital plane information, the arteriography shows the vascularization of the tumor system: carotid, basilar vertebro and tirobicervicoescapular. Pathological study shows ulceration with segmental pharyngeal necrosis in III Chandler's stage. The surgical treatment precise open surgical approaches accompanied with prior embolization. There is recurrence of 5 to 37% in particular tumors that invade the bone structure of the skull base, so it is important to apply a meticulous excision.
