Ossifying fibromyxoid tumor (OFMT) is a rare, recently described entity. As such, there is a paucity of information in the literature regarding this neoplasm. According to most reports, the tumor usually develops subcutaneously in the soft tissues of the extremities. Malignant forms of the tumor are far more rare than their benign counterparts. We present a new case of a malignant OFMT of the parapharyngeal space in a 33-year-old Pakistani man. The tumor was excised, and the patient did well with no complications. This case represents a rare occurrence of OFMT of the parapharyngeal space.
