CIG on Pathology and Reconstructive Surgery Educational Program: Pleomorphic Adenoma of the Parotid Gland - The Case for Lumpectomy Versus Superficial Parotidectomy

Synopsis

Controversy exists over the management of pleomorphic adenoma arising in the lateral portion of the parotid gland. Traditionally treated with superficial parotidectomy and formal dissection of the facial nerve, more recently lumpectomy has been suggested as adequate. Two experienced surgeons will discuss the pros and cons of each approach. Following their presentations, cases will be presented for a panel discussion of salient management points.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to:

  1. Describe the management of a pleomorphic adenoma of the lateral aspect of the parotid gland and discuss the basis for lumpectomy.
