Lipoma is the most common benign tumour which occurs anywhere in the body where adipose tissue is present which is asymptomatic, slow growing and painless. The lipoma consists of mature adipose tissue and occurs commonly in region of back, shoulder and nape of neck. Adipose tissue also exists in the parotid gland, but lipoma of the parotid gland is rare entity. The incidence of this entity has been reported to be about 1% ranging from 0.6% to 4.4% [1]. The exact aetiology of parotid lipoma is…

Parotid Gland Lipoma: An Unusual Entity.
A 57-year-old man with a well-circumscribed, rubbery mass, probably arising from the right parotid gland was investigated in the authors' hospital initially with ultrasound scan, and finally with MRI-scan, both imaging modalities implied a benign lipomatous tumor and the patient underwent an uneventful superficialParotidectomy.
Sialolipoma of the parotid gland: a rare entity
A rare case of sialolipoma is reported in the right parotid of a 45-year-old woman who was treated with superficialParotidectomy and postoperative recovery as well as follow-up has been uneventful.
Giant lipoma arising from deep lobe of the parotid gland
Surgical management of deep lobe lipoma should be performed by experienced surgeons due to the need for meticulous dissection of the facial nerve branches, and the high-resolution CT scan provides an accurate and cost-effective preoperative investigative method.
Post-traumatic lipoma of the parotid gland: case report.
The incidence of lipoma among parotid tumours ranges from 0.6% to 4.4%, with most series reporting an incidence of 1%. The most common origin of these tumours, in the parotid gland, is from the
Huge Lipoma of the Right Parotid Gland: Case Report and Review of 42 Cases
The patient's huge tumor was located in the superficial lobe of the gland, and a parotidectomy with preservation of the facial nerve was performed, and there was no complication or recurrence of the tumor after a follow-up of 1 year.
Is surgical excision of lipomas arising from the parotid gland systematically required?
Since in this series, diagnosis of lipoma had been made preoperatively in all cases, the surgical excision could be delayed and finally surgical decision has been made for esthetic and/or functional considerations in more than 80% of cases.
Surgical treatment of a giant lipoma in the parotid gland.
The experience of a 75-year-old woman who had a mass with fat density in the deep lobe of the right parotid gland, which extended through the parapharyngeal and the buccal spaces, showed that lipoma in the deeper tissues should be regarded as a well-differentiated liposarcoma and be treated with wide excision.
Lipoma of the superficial lobe of parotid gland: a case report and review of the literature
Although lipomas of the parotid rarely occur, they should be taken into consideration in the preoperative diffential diagnosis.
Parotid Lipoma: A Case Report
The case described a lipoma of the superficial lobe of the parotid gland in a 46-year-old male, which is a common benign tumor affecting the soft tissues arising in every location where fat is normally present.
