Abstract

Accessory parotid glands (APG) are occasional collections of salivary tissue separated from main parotid gland situated on masseter muscle and just above the commencement of the parotid duct.The APG exists in approximately 21-61% of individuals. Though APG gland draining by a duct into main duct is quite common, occurrence of an elongated prominent APG with a separate duct opening into main parotid duct is a rare occurrence. We present here a rare case of elongated right APG with a prominent duct of its own, which was communicating into parotid duct at the anterior border of masseter.
