Oncocytomas are rare tumors in the head and neck region. They occur commonly in salivary glands, especially in parotid glands. The prevalence is 0.5% to 1.2% in parotideal neoplasms. Oncocytomas rarely occur bilaterally. To our knowledge, only 20 cases were reported in the literature. A case with bilateral oncocytoma was presented with clinical, radiologic, and pathologic findings and treatment options in this study.
