• In a patient who had undergone pharyngeal resection and reconstruction with transposed deltopectoral skin, multiple benign verrucous tumors developed in the neopharynx. These did not resemble the carcinoma for which the original ablative surgery was performed but required extensive resection for restoration of adequate swallowing. Although this complication appears to be rare, the number of patients at risk is sizable, and further examples may be expected in the future.
