Abstract

We report a case of melanotic oncocytic metaplasia. The lesion was incidentally detected in the nasopharynx of a 60-year-old woman. Fiberscopic examination revealed small multiple brown-pigmented nodules at the pharyngeal openings of the auditory tube on both sides. Microscopically, the lesion showed the grandular pattern of melanin-containing oncocytes. The nodules on the left side, which were larger than those on the right side, were removed using forceps. Such a pigmented variant of benign oncoytic lesion is very rare.
