A Rare Case of Parotid Gland Neoplasm with Squamous Cell Origin

Yameena Noman Khan, Ali Mala*, Vinesh Kumar, Asif Husain Osmani

Primary squamous cell carcinoma of the parotid gland is a rare and an aggressive malignancy and has devastating consequences. Although managed with radical surgery and adjuvant radiotherapy, the outcome of this disease remains dismal. It is vital to distinguish these tumors from metastatic squamous cell carcinoma and other primary malignancies of the parotid gland via clinical and histological examinations. We hereby report a case of a young male patient presented with a progressively increasing mass in the left parotid region, with radiology and pathology consistent with primary parotid gland SCC along with lung metastasis. He received palliative chemotherapy initially but later passed away due to progression of disease.
