Angiolipoma of the parotid: Case report and review

Academic Article


  • An angiolipoma is a benign adipose tissue tumor that can occur as either a circumscribed or an infiltrating lesion and represents up to 17% of all lipomas. Most angiolipomas occur in teenagers and young adults, and are rarely described in younger children. Angiolipoma generally arises on the extremities or trunk, and it is unusual when found in tbe head and neck. Am angiolipoma of the parotid region was suspected in an infant girl after contrast-enhanced computerized tomographic scan, and was confirmed when the mass was surgically excised. The clinical characteristics, radiological appearance, and histopathology of angiolipoma are discussed. © The American Laryngological, Rhinological and Otological Society, Inc.
