  • Look Inside

 A 35-year-old female with a large parapharyngeal abscess had been treated by surgical incision and drainage several times, and by chemotherapy for about 2 months. She received tonsillectomy followed by an extended incision in the parapharyngeal space for drainage, and topical application of antibiotics. The therapy was effective, and the patient made successful and complete cure. Anatomical, bacteriological, and diagnostic considerations on the treatment of parapharyngeal abscess were discussed.
