Parotid fistula, though uncommon, may be troublesome to the patient and difficult for the physician to manage. A parotid duct fistula is a communication between the duct system and the skin which allows discharge of saliva externally. A closely related condition results from a dehiscence in Stensen's duct or its branches under the intact skin which causes an accumulation of saliva in a smooth, fibrous lined, cystic structure, termed a sialocele. Management of established duct fistula is controversial with a variety of methods both conservative and operative being reported in the literature, each having varying degrees of success. We report here the two cases of parotid fistulae, with a brief literature review. Source
