Abstract

Patient: A 39-year-old Hispanic woman. History of Present Illness: The patient had swelling of the left side of her neck, which she had first noticed 3 to 4 months before consultation and which did not subside after 2 courses of antibiotics. She reported no tenderness, dysphagia, odynophagia, dysphonia, otalgia, fevers, chills, or weight changes. Past medical history: The patient had a past history of gastroesophageal reflux disease, arthritis (knee and cervical disease), and a prior abnormal Pap smear result (high grade squamous intraepithelial lesion). The cervical lesion was treated with a loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP). Her past surgical history is remarkable for cholecystectomy and a left breast biopsy with benign results. Social history: Noncontributory. Family history: Noncontributory. Physical exam: The patient harbored a firm, nontender, fully mobile 2- to 3-cm left parotid tail mass without other abnormalities; her facial nerve function was intact in all branches. Principle Laboratory Findings: See Image 1, Image 2, Image 3, Image 4, Image 5, and Image 6.
