Operative treatment of tuberculosis of parotid gland a report of 23 cases



Operative treatment of tuberculosis of parotid gland a report of 23 cases



Chinese Journal of Tuberculosis & Respiratory Diseases 7(5): 277-276, 319



Cases (23) of tuberculosis of the parotid gland surgically treated are reported. Twelve of 23 cases were diagnosed pre-operatively. The focus of tuberculosis was located in the parotid gland, and was difficult to cure by conservative treatment. In order to eliminate the focus, surgical excision is advisable. Most of parotid tuberculosis originated from the lymph nodes of the parotid spreading to the parotid substance. Early cases were excised simply when the focus involved the lymph node only or the lymph node and nearby to tissues. Once the focus was evident in the gland, a parotidectomy was performed. Facial nerve damage is liable to occur, if extensive adhesion is present. The wide extension of the disease if bound to be followed by operative difficulties. Operative treatment of tuberculosis of the parotid gland should be considered in early cases.
