Abstract

Malignat parotid tumors in children are rare, especially squamous cell carcinomas.
A 10-year-old boy visited our hospital with a parotid swelling on the right side. Sialography, CT-scanning, Ga-scintigraphy, ultrasonography and cytological examination by needle biopsy showed possible malignant tumor, but rapid histological examination of a frozen section during the operation proved negative. The parotid gland was removed totally with prevention of injury to the facial nerve. Postoperative permanent sections of the tumor showed well-differentiated squamous cell carcinoma. He was irradiated with 6000 rads of 60Co and recieved adjuvant chemotherapy. There has been no recurrence.
