Lipoma of the deep lobe of the parotid gland is
extremely rare. A forty-two-year-old man presented
with a painless, soft, and slow-growing mass in the
left preauricular area. Ultrasonography and computed
tomography findings were consistent with lipoma.
The patient was treated with superficial parotidectomy
and total excision of the mass with preservation
of the facial nerve. Histologic findings confirmed the
diagnosis. No recurrences were detected during 1.5
years in the postoperative period.
