Histopathologic examination revealed a solid intraparotid Warthin tumor that was partially cystic (Figure 3). Focal squamous metaplasia and partial necrosis were present (Figure 4). There was a proliferation of histiocytes, consistent with previous bleeding. There was no evidence of malignancy. Because of patient-related circumstances, the first follow-up visit took place 6 months after surgery. The function of the facial nerve at that time was normal, with the exception of a discrete paresis of the marginal mandibular branch. There was complete recovery of the facial nerve approximately 3 months after surgery.
