Benign mixed tumor of the mandible 17 years after the occurrence of a similar lesion in the parotid gland.

Abstract

Presented is a salivary tumor occurring in the posterior mandible. This tumor was preceded by a mixed tumor of the ipsilateral parotid gland, which was removed surgically 17 years earlier. The actual connection between the two lesions is discussed, but the true relationship can only be speculative. The mandibular lesion may represent a recurrence of the parotid tumor, a second primary tumor, or may possibly be metastatic in origin.
