Abstract

Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is well known for its marked invasive & metastatic potential and manifests in a variety of forms. Cranial nerve(s) involvement is seen in 20% cases of NPC. But clinically evident facial nerve paresis/palsy is a rare presentation. Authors describe a case of NPC in an 11 years female child who presented with right sided cervical mass with facial nerve paresis.
