 This paper reports 13 cases of parapharyngeal space tumors, and a comparison was made with other Japanese referense. The results were as follows.

 1) In cases of parapharyngeal space tumors, subjective symptoms were slight, and many of the patients visited clinics several years after the onset.

 2) The tumors were found mostly in youth or in the prime of life, but it was not rare to find them in infants and young children also. The incidence was slightly higher in woman than in man.

 3) There were few malignant tumors. Most of them were benign tumors such as neurilemmoma and so called mixed tumors.

 4) Most of them were removed intraorally, but extraoral incision was needed in some cases according to the size, degree of enlargement, and elasticity of the tumors. The prognosis was good if the tumors were removed completely with the surrounding capsules.
