Abstract

A record of surgical treatment of salivary gland tumors is presented. Out of twenty four patients, 13(58%) were male and 11 (42%) female with a mean age of 27 years. Palpable lump was the commonest complaint observed in 16(66.6%) patients followed by symptoms and signs of facial nerve palsy recorded in 4(16.6%) cases. Superficial Parotidectomy was the most frequent procedure performed in 10(41.6%) patients while benign mixed and Warthin’s tumor were the commonest histological lesion found ¡n 7(29.1%) cases each. Temporary facial nerve palsy was noted in 4 (16.6%) Patients while permanent facial nerve palsy was encountered in 2(8.3%) cases. The predictive value of FNAC in the preoperative diagnosis of salivary gland tumors (95%) is further substantiated in this study.
