Abstract

Tumours of the parotid gland in children are uncommon, and represent only 1.3% of all benign salivary tumours. Lipomas of the parotid are also rare, and account for 0.5% of all parotid gland tumours. Sialolipoma is a new variant of salivary gland lipoma, consisting of adipose and glandular tissue that was first proposed by Nagao et al. in 2001. Ten cases of parotid gland lipoma associated with glandular elements have been previously reported in the literature. All have been in adults and none in children. We present the first reported case of congenital sialolipoma that had developed in a female infant. It was managed successfully by superficial parotidectomy undertaken at ten weeks of age.
