Warthin's tumor in the nasopharynx is extremely rare. A 76-year-old man was referred to our hospital for treatment of a nasopharyngeal tumor. Fiberscopic examination, CT and MRI findings showed an oval mass in the right side of the posterior nasopharynx. The tumor was resected surgically using the transpalatal approach. Pathological examination indicated Warthin's tumor. There have not been any signs of recurrence postoperatively.
