  • A 1ST BRANCHIAL CLEFT ANOMALY WITHIN THE PAROTID-GLAND OTOLARYNGOLOGY-HEAD AND NECK SURGERY Koltai, P. J., WINKELMANN, P. E. 1980; 88 (1): 44-48

    Abstract:

    Although the parotid glands are affected more frequently by cysts and congenital lesions than other salivary glands, the benign multigerminal cyst arising from a duplication anomaly of the first branchial cleft within the parotid gland is extremely rare. Forty-two cases of this unusual cause of parotid swelling have been reported in the literature. An example of a first branchial cleft anomaly appearing clinically as a parotid tumor is reported.
