Extension patterns of nasopharyngeal carcinoma

, : Extension patterns of nasopharyngeal carcinoma. European Radiology 17(10): 2622-2630

The nasopharynx represents an intersection between the nasal choanae, the oropharynx, the deep facial spaces, the skull base and the intracranial cavity. Most nasopharyngeal neoplasms are malignant tumors showing aggressive local infiltration along well-defined routes. The primary role of imaging is accurate tumor mapping and detection of possible tumor extension, especially to the skull base and the deep facial spaces. The aim of this paper is to illustrate these extension patterns of nasopharyngeal carcinomas on imaging and to show the particular implication of imaging in the correct staging of the lesion.
