abstract Sialolipoma is a relatively new and rare variant of lipoma of the salivary glands characterized by the combination of classical lipoma morphology with non-neoplastic ductulo-acinary salivary tissue components. Including the presented case, 27 sialolipomas, 14 of them localized in the parotid gland, have been published. We describe the clinical, radiological and pathomorphological characteristics of a parotid sialolipoma in a 43-year-old man.
