Abstract

A case of parotid lipomatosis is reported, and the literature is reviewed. This rare condition presents as a slow growing parotid mass, which may be diagnosed preoperatively using computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging. Long-term clinical follow-up is important because apparently complete surgical excision may be complicated by recurrence.
