The authors report the case of an adult parapharyngeal rhabdomyoma in a-66-years old man, revealed by dysphagia. Optical and electronical microscopic aspects and immunohistochemistry are presented and compared with those of the literature. The pathogenesis of this benign striated muscle tumor is still unclear. A recent study tends to confirm that it is a really benign neoplasm.
