Heterotopic salivary gland presenting as a discharging sinus in the base of the neck
AbstractWe report a case of congenital heterotopic salivary gland with draining sinus in the lower neck on the right side of a 10-year-old female, which we initially thought to be a branchial fistula. Heterotopic salivary glands are rare lesions in the neck and when present appear very similar to branchial cleft sinus or fistula. This congenital lesion is rare. This is probably the first report from India. It is important to report this case to raise the awareness of this condition.
