Abstract

The retropharyngeal space is a virtual space behind the pharynx, which extends from the scull base to the level of the fourth thoracic vertebra. Many retropharyngeal masses can cause dysphagia or airway obstruction. We report the case of a 69 year-old woman with a much enlarged aneurysm in the extracranial portion of the left internal carotid, causing dysphagia, and a short review of the relevant literature. (Folia Morphol 2010; 69, 4: 267-270)
