Abstract

Fine-needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy of the parapharyngeal space (PPS) is a diagnostic challenge and sampling is often done without image guidance, often trans-orally. Primary PPS tumors are rare, and there is a broad differential diagnosis. The accuracy of PPS FNA, in particular without CT-guidance and using liquid-based cytology (LBC), has not been well… (More)
