Abstract

It is a rare condition and characterized by multiple episodes of parotid swelling and/or pain associated with fever or malaise over a period of years. Juvenile recurrent parotitis (JRP) is defined as recurrent inflammatory parotitis in children of unknown etiology.1 Salivary gland diseases in children are rare, apart from viral-induced diseases. Clinical diagnostics and especially the surgical treatment are influenced by a stringent indication and a less invasive strategy. Due to the rarity of tumors of the salivary glands in children, it is recommended to treat them in a specialized center with greater surgical experience. In most cases, the symptoms resolve spontaneously after puberty but all children should be screened to exclude Sjogren’s syndrome, lymphoma, and immunodeficiency including human immunodeficiency virus. Parotid abscess results as a complication of primary parotitis and are very rare in the pediatric population, we present a 6-year-old girl who had 15 episodes of recurrent parotid swelling over past 3 months.
