abstract

  • We are presenting the case of a patient who developed a parotid sialocele after sustaining a facial injury. The patient was treated by creating a controlled intraoral fistula that drained saliva into the oral cavity and led to resolution of the sialocele. Articles were reviewed for discussion of current treatment methods in managing parotid sialocele and fistula. The articles reported successful management of parotid sialocele and fistula using both nonsurgical and surgical methods. Treatment depends upon the location of the injury (ductal injury vs. parenchymal injury) and the time of treatment (delayed vs. immediate).
