Abstract

Chronic sclerosing sialadenitis is a chronic inflammatory salivary gland disease. Küttner reported 4 cases of submandibular gland lesions for the first time in 1896. Chronic sclerosing sialadenitis is a very rare inflammatory lesion of the parotid gland and cannot be easily distinguished from salivary malignant masses. We reported a 28-year-old male with a painful parotid tumour, which grew slowly for 4 years.
