ABSTRACT

Melanoma is the most serious form of skin cancer, and lifetime risk of melanoma is increasing rapidly both in men and women. Melanoma in the parotid gland is rarely seen and it is more likely to be metastatic disease. We present here a rare case of malignant melanoma from the forehead skin to the parotid glands bilaterally.

Parotid Actinomycosis Mimicking Metastatic Lymphadenopathy

Issue: 
Pages: 
349–50

ABSTRACT

We present a patient with actinomycosis of the parotid, as confirmed by histology and discuss the challenges involved when clinical and radiological findings are highly indicative of metastatic malignancy. Early treatment with antibiotics is indicated in fungating or infected masses and exclusion of malignancy by histology is often needed.
