Abstract Introduction The purpose of this paper is to report an apparently heretofore unrecorded condition of bilateral fatty infiltration of the parotid gland which simulated neoplasm.A review of the Cumulative Index Medicus for the past 20 years reveals only one reference1 to a related lesion, which was reported as a nodule of fatty infiltration in one parotid. Lang2 mentions fatty infiltration under the designation of lipomatosis. No mention is made of this condition in a fascicle entitled "Tumors of the Major Salivary Glands,"3 and Foote4 states that he has not encountered a similar lesion. Rawson et al.5 mentioned one case of lipoma without further comment. Payne6 stated that lipomata are particularly likely to occur in the parotid. This case is reported because of its rarity and resemblance to other lesions occurring bilaterally, such as papillary cystadenoma lymphomatosum, mixed tumor, benign lymphoepithelial lesion, and masseteric References 1.
