Pharyngeal recess edit Extracted from Wikipedia, the Free Encyclopedia - Original source - History
Behind the ostiumdisambiguation needed of the eustacian tube is a deep recess, the pharyngeal recess (fossa of Rosenmüller).
At the base of this recess is the retropharyngeal lymph node (the Node of Rouvier.) This is clinically significant in that it may be involved in certain head and neck cancers, notably Nasopharyngeal cancer.
