Abstract

Warthin's tumor is a benign salivary gland tumor of the parotid gland. Although bilateral or multicentric involvement of the parotid gland is common, extraparotid involvement is seen rarely. The nasopharynx is an unusual region for extraparotid involvement. In this article, we present a 52-year-old male case with a synchronized Warthin's tumor in the bilateral parotid gland and nasopharynx, and we discuss the clinical management of the disease.
