Lipoma in the parotid gland: a clinical case presentation

Abstract:

Lipoma of the parotid gland is a rare benign mesenchymal tumor. It is seldom considered in the differential diagnosis of the salivary glands pathology. Lipoma represents approximately 1% of the parotid gland tumors.

We report a clinical case of a 54-year-old male patient presented with 5-year history of painless, slow-growing mass in the left parotid gland. The management of choice was surgical removal of the lateral lobe of the parotid gland with facial nerve preservation. No tumor recurrence, facial nerve palsy or pain was noted postoperatively.
