In patients with head and neck cancer, dysphagia may be primarily sourced from invasion or extension of the mass or following surgical therapeutic intervention for removing tumor. With respect to the origin of dysphagia, it can occur following the extension of malignancies in the head and neck region. Herein, we describe a case with a primary compliant of dysphagia alone with the final diagnosis of primary retropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma that was successfully managed by surgical intervention. In total, in our case study we can be concluded that if the examinations, imaging and examinations during the operation show that the retropharyngeal mass did not involve the larynx and posterior cricoid cartilage, we will be able to preserve the larynx during the operation. So, it can recovery the major symptom (dysphagia) as well as preserve faction of larynx, voice and ability to oral nutrition.
