Abstract

Stensen's duct obstruction is relatively uncommon. Many etiologies can lead to this problem. Nevertheless, juvenile Stensen's duct obstructions are even more rarely seen and often originate from congenital anomalies, trauma, and acute infections. The present study reports a 14-yearold female with sudden onset of unilateral parotid swelling and pain. No significant predisposing factors were noted. After debridement of the abscess, a silicone tube stent was placed with a satisfactory outcome.
