Due to the movements of the soft palate, the nasopharynx is normally not opacified.
The conducting portion of the respiratory system includes the nasal cavity, paranasal sinuses, nasopharynx , larynx, trachea, and bronchi.
After pre-operative embolisation, the tumour was resected from the infratemporal and pterygopalatine fossae, sphenoid sinus, nasopharynx , nasal cavity and maxillary antrum.
Mucous membrane involvement is common, primarily of the oral mucosa and conjunctiva, but may also include the nasopharynx , larynx, esophagus, genitalia, and rectal mucosa.
These bacteria originate and spread from the nasopharynx to the middle ear cavity by way of the eustachian tube.
Patients often present with upper respiratory symptoms including rhinorrhea, paranasal sinus pain and drainage, and nasopharyngeal mucosal ulceration.
The biopsy specimens from the 2 cases consisted of nasopharyngeal stromal tissue extensively infiltrated by tumor with no discernible continuity with the overlying ciliated mucosal lining.
Structures adjacent to the nasopharynx, such as nerves and vessels, facilitate the infiltration of nasopharyngeal cancer through foramina and fissures, from extracranial to intracranial spaces.
In fact, in numerous published studies on nasopharyngeal tumors, nasopharyngeal adenocarcinomas are merely mentioned, and their detailed analysis is seldom presented.
The rate of temperature change was slower at the bladder site than at the esophageal and nasopharyngeal sites but faster than the rectal site.
