Basal cell adenoma of the parotid gland

Ann Plast Surg. 1978 Nov;1(6):617-8. doi: 10.1097/00000637-197811000-00014.


Basal cell adenoma of the parotid gland is infrequently seen and rarely documented in the American literature. A case history is presented to emphasize its occurrence in older men and to discuss its pathological appearance. A review of the literature shows that superficial conservative parotidectomy is the treatment of choice because the lesion is considered benign.
