A 9-MONTH-OLD boy presented with an enlarging mass in the area of the right parotid gland for several weeks. The mass was asymptomatic, with no tenderness, drainage, or facial weakness noted. The patient was otherwise healthy, with no significant medical history. Physical examination revealed a smooth, firm, 2.5-cm mass that appeared fixed to the underlying soft tissues and could be palpated posterior to the mandibular ramus. There were no overlying skin changes. The right facial nerve was intact, and the results of the rest of the head and neck examination were unremarkable.
