Oncocytic lipoadenoma of the salivary gland is a rarely
encountered tumor. A 56-year-old man presented
with a two-year history of a slow-growing mass of the
left parotid gland. Computed tomography scan with
contrast showed a 7x6.5x6 cm well-circumscribed
solid parotid mass of the left superficial and deep
lobe. Fine-needle aspiration yielded oncocytic cells
exclusively, suggesting Warthin tumor or an oncocytoma.
Left total parotidectomy was performed. A
diagnosis of oncocytic lipoadenoma was made. At
six-month follow-up no evidence of recurrence has
been noted. Oncocytic lipoadenoma should be considered
in the differential diagnosis of oncocytic proliferations
and oncocytic tumors in the parotid gland.
