This is the first report of recurrent nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) presenting as a cerebellopontine angle mass. The clinical presentation, investigation and management of this case, as well as the confusion and dilemma caused, are discussed. We hope to increase awareness on the multifaceted ways in which recurrent NPC could present and to share the lessons learnt from our management of this unusual and unfortunate case.
