Abstract A 16-year-old girl had a benign lymphoepithelial lesion in the left parotid gland, associated with cytomegalic inclusions which were confined solely to the area of the lesion. To our knowledge, no analogical case has been described. The possible relationship between these two conditions is discussed, and pertinent literature is reviewed. References 1.
