AN OBESE 53-year-old woman presented to her primary physician for evaluation of a chronic headache. Appropriate workup included a computed tomographic scan of the head. Although there was no evidence of a pathologic condition to explain her headaches, there was an incidental finding of a retropharyngeal mass. Based on this finding, the patient underwent a computed tomographic scan of the neck (Figure 1 and Figure 2) and was subsequently referred to our institution.
