Abstract

A 1. 4-year-old child presented to our clinic complaining of an infraauricular mass. After admission, we performed CT scan, PPD testing, Ga-scintigraphy and ultrasound. The final diagnosis was based on the histological findings of the surgical specimen and on the PPD test. The treatment was superficial parotidectomy and antibiotic therapy.
Combination therapy with INH, RFP and SM was administered for six months, and no recurrence has been noted to date.
