Nasopharyngeal teratomas are rare congenital tumors which mainly cause neonatal respiratory difficulty or feeding problems. We report an extremely rare case of nasopharyngeal teratoma in which a 34-year-old woman experienced a foreign body sensation. Simple radiographs and CT scans revealed the presence of an exophytically growing mass with a region of fatty attenuation and a well-formed tooth in the nasopharyngeal wall. The mass was surgically removed, and found at histopathology to be a mature teratoma.
