Abstract

We present a case of a parotid tumor – acinic cell carcinoma – involving the superficial and deep lobe, surgically treated with total parotidectomy and then submitted to local and cervical radiotherapy.
We have chosen this case due to the fact that the tumor involved both the superficial and deep lobe, without involving the facial nerve. This putted a bigger surgical challenge, which was the removal of the tumor and the gland preserving the nerve and its branches.
At CUF Descobertas Hospital, the treatment of patients with head and neck cancer is assured by the multidisciplinary collaboration of Otorhinolaryngology, Haemato-Oncology and Radiotherapy departments. Salivary glands tumors are one example, as is the case presented.
