Although visualization via nasopharyngoscopy and MRI complemented by computed tomography (CT) is recommended in the diagnostic workup of a parapharyngeal mass (6), CT was not performed in our case as preoperative MRI and biopsy results confirmed the primary diagnosis of glial heterotopia and directed the decision to excise the malformation.
Anterior rhinoscopy showed a huge mass over the right nasal cavity, and nasopharyngoscopy revealed a smooth nasopharynx surface.
They concluded that the clinical assessment of ETD should include otoscopy/otomicroscopy, tympanometry, tuning fork tests or pure tone audiometry, and nasopharyngoscopy. The diagnosis of ETD should include ETD symptoms and negative pressure in the middle ear observed either in the tympanogram or as a retraction of the tympanic membrane [1].
