A 10-year-old girl presented with a 4-month history of a very slowly enlarging mass in her right cheek, with 1 episode of a “muddy” taste in her mouth. She was afebrile and in no acute distress. Physical examination revealed an approximately 3.5-cm area of fullness in the region of the right parotid gland that was nonerythematous, nonfluctuant, and nontender to palpation. The active and passive range of motion of the neck was fully intact. Facial nerve function was normal and symmetrical bilaterally.
