Abstract

耳下腺に生ずる嚢胞性疾患は少ないが, その多くは腫瘍性嚢胞であり, 単純性嚢胞はかなり稀で鯉原性嚢胞, 類皮嚢胞, 貯留嚢胞などがある.本症例は左耳下腺浅葉に発生した, 頬部から耳下部に及ぶ, 巨大な貯留嚢胞であった.本症例は11cmと過去の報告と比較しても最大であったが, 外科的に完全に切除でき再発は認められない.貯留嚢胞には悪性腫瘍の合併が報告されていることからも腫瘍性病変に準じた手術が望ましい.耳下腺貯留嚢胞について若干の文献的考察を述べた.

A 58-year old man complained of a massive painless swelling in the left parotid area. His chief complaint was the inconvenience caused by the large size of the lesion.<BR>Aspiration was repeated many times before the final surgical operation. Surgical resection of the cyst was not easy because it was large, extending from below the buccal region into the superficial lobe of the parotid gland. The gross specimen measured 11 cm at its greatest diameter. Histological examination revealed it to be a retention cyst. This cyst was resected completely without complications, and presently there are no signs of recurrence.
