Abstract

Intraductal papilloma is an extremely rare benign tumor especially when it arises from major salivary gland. Recently, we experienced a case of an intraductal papilloma arising from the parotid gland in a 51-year-old woman. The radiologic finding showed lobulated enhancing and cystic solid mass in the left parotid superficial lobe. Superficial parotidectomy was performed. Pathological findings showed papillary proliferations with fibrovascular cores lined with bland cuboidal or columnar epithelial cells, and immunohistochemical stain results were consistent with intraductal papilloma. We report a case of intraductal papilloma in parotid gland with a review of literature.
