Abstract

REYNOSO HEINSEN, Wally Joel et al. Bilateral and multiple parotid gland tumour. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2014, vol.7, n.2, pp.148-151. ISSN 2386-8201.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4321/S1699-695X2014000200012.

Salivary gland tumours, although quite uncommon, may be a reason for primary care consultation. Of all the glands, the parotid gland is where they are most frequently located (80-85 % of cases), with the pleomorphic adenoma being the most common, followed by the Warthin tumour, which makes up between 2 % and 15 % of the total of benign neoplasms. We present the case of a bilateral multifocal Warthin tumour initially detected and diagnosed by ultrasound scan and fine needle puncture-aspiration assessment (PAAF), carried out at the Buenavista health centre, Toledo.

Keywords : Salivary Gland Neoplasms; Warthin tumour; Ultrasonography.
