AUTHOR(S): Dr. Jayaprasad Anekar, Dr. Krishna Santhosh Kumar, Dr. Jayalakshmi Baipadavu and Dr. Ivin Elsa John
ABSTRACT:Accessory parotid glands are salivary tissue collections seen as separate glandular mass detached from the main parotid gland lying on the masseter muscle. It develops from the branching of the blind end of the parotid tube and by glandular proliferation of secretory and stromal structures.

The following case report depicts a case of accessory parotid gland presenting as a mid-cheek mass in the right buccal mucosa.
