Angiomyoma is an uncommon, benign, soft tissue tumour characterised by bundles of smooth muscle cells intermixed with numerous vascular channels, which usually develops in the lower extremities. Oral manifestations are quite rare. Most oral cases occur in the lips and tongue; angiomyoma affecting the buccal vestibule is very rare. A case of angiomyoma in the buccal vestibule with a normal karyotype is reported.
Angiomyoma is a common soft tissue tumour of the head and neck that sometimes presents to the otolaryngologist; however, it seldom occurs in the major salivary glands. We present a case of angiomyoma arising in the submandibular gland, a tumour not described previously in the English literature.
We encountered a 59-year-old man with angiomyoma of the retropharyngeal space. He had been referred to our hospital because of a six-month history of a sensation of a narrowed pharynx. A smooth-surfaced tumour arising from the posterior wall in the hypopharynx was observed by indirect laryngoscopy. Radiographical imaging revealed a solitary tumour with homogenous contents in the retropharyngeal space. The tumour was successfully removed via a lateral pharyngotomy approach under general anaesthesia. Histopathologically, the tumour was composed of numerous veins with thick muscular walls. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of an angiomyoma arising in the retropharyngeal space.
