Inflammatory pseudotumor of the upper airway is an uncommon lesion of unknown etiology, clinically mimicking a neoplastic process. We document a case of inflammatory pseudotumor of the parapharyngeal space, occurring in a patient with history of cocaine abuse. Corticosteroid treatment was successful in reducing the symptoms. The difficulties in establishing this clinicopathologic diagnosis are discussed and the pertinent literature is reviewed.
