Author: Salah, Tilal; Eltohami, Yousif Idris; Halawi, Ahmed; Suliman, Ahmed M.; Atta, Abosofyan S
Abstract: Benign Lymphoepithelial Cysts are Uncommon Developmental Lesions Occurring Usually Within Areas Including Lymphoid Tissue. They are Often Much Smaller in Size When Compared to Branchial Cysts Yet are Microscopically Indistinguishable and Many Authors Consider them to be the Same Entity. These Dysontogenic Lesions are Most Commonly Found in the Lateral Neck but May Also be Found in Salivary Glands (Mostly the Parotids). A 42 Years Old Female Reported to Khartoum Teaching Dental Hospital Complaining of a Left Parotid Region Swelling that is Persistent Even After Going Through a Previous Surgery for the Same Cause at Another Hospital. The Swelling was non-tender, Compressible and Diffuse with a Size of 4×3.5 cm. at the Time of Presentation Alongside a Normal Stensen’s Duct and Facial Nerve Functions. Viral Screening was Negative for HIV, HCV and HBV. CT Imaging + Soft Tissue Contrast Revealed a Cystic Mass within the Left Parotid Gland. Cystic Enucleation was Done and HPE Revealed it to be a BLC.
