2.  Ectopic parapharyngeal meningioma: diagnosis of a rare entity on FNAC 
Journal of Surgical Case Reports  2012;2012(12):rjs024.
Meningioma is a tumour most commonly located intracranially that may rarely extend extracranially. Ectopic meningioma presenting as parapharyngeal mass is a rare entity. We report a case of an 18-year-old female who presented with a complaint of swelling below the right angle of mandible associated with difficulty in swallowing for the last 3 months. The swelling measured 1.5 × 1 cm and was firm, fixed, non-pulsatile, non-transilluminant and non-tender. Computer tomography revealed a heterogenous enhancing mass with foci of calcification in parapharyngeal space without any intracranial component. Intraoral fine needle aspiration cytology was performed. A cytological diagnosis of spindle cell lesion of neural origin with the closest possibility of meningioma was rendered. Excision biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of ectopic parapharyngeal meningioma. It is important for clinicians and pathologists to be aware of this entity at the unusual site.
