Abstract

We describe a case of lymphoepithelial lesion of the parotid gland, also known as salivary lymphoepithelial lesion. Lymphoepithelial lesions are usually seen in conjunction with autoimmune disease of the salivary glands and these lesions do not always remain benign. Our case consisted of two masses that had different imaging features. Moreover, we could investigate the changes of the size and internal architecture on imaging due to the postponement of surgical intervention on the masses. At review 6 months later, the size of the masses had increased. The aims of this paper were to: (1) investigate the contribution of gray-scale sonography, power Doppler sonography, magnetic resonance imaging, and computed tomography to the diagnosis; and (2) consider the appropriate imaging modality to follow-up this case to monitor for recurrence or malignant transformation.
