Abstract

Tuberculosis of the parotid gland is not a common disease. We reported here two cases of tuberculosis of the parotid gland. The first case is a 78-year-old man who had a left parotid gland mass for 10 years. We suspected pleomorphic adenoma from the preoperative findings of MRI and performed a parotidectomy. Postoperative pathological findings showed a Warthin's tumor of the parotid gland with tuberculosis. We realized that this case was very rare.<br>The second case is a 76-year-old woman who had had a left parotid gland mass for 1 month. The mass had rapidly enlarged and adhered to the skin, in addition to the skin becoming reddish. She complained of tenderness at the mass. We suspected a malignant tumor of the parotid gland and performed surgical resections with the skin. Postoperative pathological findings showed tuberculosis of the parotid gland.<br>Tuberculosis is one of the most important of the re-emerging infectious diseases in the world. We should always consider tuberculosis, because early diagnosis and treatment are mandatory.
