Abstract
Lateral pharyngeal space (LPS), also called parapharyngeal space (PPS), is one of the important fascial planes of the head and neck, that may become involved by various
pathological processes, such as infections, inflammation and neoplasms.1 This space is well known to the oral and maxillofacial surgeons as the area of spreading dental
infection, where incision and drainage becomes necessary for keeping absolute respiration and airway, and also as the
most difficult space to approach because of the many different kinds of muscles, fascias, vessels and nerves. The calcified stylohyoid ligament with styloid process is also located in this space, so this space is more acquainted with Eagle’s syndrome to the maxillofacial and plastic surgeons.
