This is one of the series of surgical monograms from the collection of Henri Modor. It is presented more or less in lecture form. The first chapter deals with traumatism in the parotid region and its sequelae. Also discussed are traumatism of the gland and its excretory duct, fistulas of the parotid, preparotid fistulas, and extrapetrous facial paralyses and their treatment.

The second chapter deals with parotid tumors. There is an anatopathologic discussion of the various types of tumors that may occur in this region, such as mixed tumors, recurrent mixed tumors, hemolymphangiomas, lipomas, and schwannomas. Here, too, the pathology, diagnosis (including roentgen studies), treatment, and prognosis are all included. Under treatment the author describes his technique for the excision of the parotid gland. Cystic adenolymphomas, parotid adenomas, parotid cysts, cylindromas, and glandular cancers are all discussed from the standpoint of histology, symptomatology, diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment.
