Abstract

Neoplasms of the major and minor salivary glands are morphologically and a clinically diverse group of neoplasms which lead the clinician to diagnostic and management challenges. This article aims to report a case of mucoepidermoid carcinoma in 83 – year - old woman who presented in the dermatology clinic with a tumour mass in the left auricular area. The patient complained of pain and abnormal bleeding of the mass. The lesion was examined, and surgical treatment was performed. A tumour was extirpated, and partial resection of both the parotid gland and the sternocleidomastoid muscle was done. Lymphatic dissection was performed. Post recovery was uneventful with no functional defects and abnormalities. The pathohistological result confirmed the diagnosis of mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the parotid gland with massive infiltration of the skin and the subcutaneous tissue. Lymph nodules with total metastasis of mucoepidermoid carcinoma and capsular invasion were additionally presented. Postoperative radiation therapy was planned.
