Nasopharyngeal carcinoma NPC is a rare malignancy in most parts of the world and is one of the most confusing, commonly misdiagnosed, and poorly understood diseases. It is unusual among all the head and neck cancers due to its marked geographical predilection, highly malignant tumor growth characteristics, special difficulties in detection and staging and a high rate of treatment failure despite of its radiosensitivity. This carcinoma is rare in most parts of the world with reported incidence of around 1 case per 100,000 population per year. Nasopharyngeal carcinoma is common in Southern China and North Africa, where the etiology is related to dietary habits but it is rare in other parts of the world. Therefore, for better understanding of etiopathogenesis, clinical pathological features, early diagnosis and prognosis of NPC, we report a rare case of a nasopharyngeal carcinoma in Central India, of a 19 year old female patient who presented with a mass in her neck and intraoral involvement of the soft palate.
