Warthin's tumour and facial nerve palsy: an unusual association


, : Warthin's tumour and facial nerve palsy: an unusual association. British Journal of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery 49(3): 237-238

We describe a man with Warthin's tumour diagnosed on core biopsy, who presented with ipsilateral facial palsy. He was managed conservatively with subsequent resolution of the palsy, which suggested many diseases. The association of a benign parotid neoplasm with facial palsy is unusual, and appropriate investigations are essential for accurate diagnosis and surgical planning.
