Abstract

Agenesis of the parotid gland is a rare disorder, usually discovered after the onset of secondary symptoms such as dry mouth, dental decay, and gingival infections. We describe a case of unilateral agenesis of the parotid gland in a 42-year-old male with non-tender swelling in the contralateral parotid region. For diagnosis,physical examination, USG and CT were performed.
