Nasopharyngeal fibrolipoma is exceedingly rare. This review article aims to recognize the characteristics of this rare tumor along with a favorable way to diagnose and treat it. We reviewed six cases of nasopharyngeal fibrolipoma. This lesion involves both sexes at any age. It is tremendously rare with only six case reports in the English literature and should be considered in the differential for nasopharyngeal masses. Nasopharyngeal fibrolipoma can be diagnosed by radiological investigations as a hypodense, well-defined nonenhancing lesion on the computed tomography and confirmed histologically, and endoscopic or transoral surgical excision approach is the most accepted management. However, no cases reported recurrence for this lesion.
