Abstract

A 25-year-old female presented with a well-defined, painless mass of 1 year's duration in the right parotid gland. MR imaging revealed a relatively well-circumscribed lesion involving the deep and superficial lobes of the right parotid gland. Histologic examination of the resection resulted in a diagnosis of sclerosing polycystic adenosis, a rare benign salivary gland entity of presumed non-neoplastic origin. The clinical, radiographic, and morphologic features of sclerosing polycystic adenosis are discussed.
