A hamartoma is a tumor-like lesion made up of tissues indigenous to the part but lacks the true growth potential of a true neoplasm. Hamartomas are rare in head and neck region. Since they are often asymptomatic, they are easily missed during routine examination. To the best of our knowledge, lymphangiomatous hamartoma of parapharyngeal space has not been reported in medical literature so far. We report a rare case of lymphangiomatous hamartoma of parapharyngeal space in an 8-year-old child managed by surgery.
