Parotid sialadenitis

Demonstration of both the inflammatory changes of the right parotid gland and the anatomy of the vessels and ducts associated with the parotid gland.

 

In this animation, I have paused the animation to demonstrate the parotid papilla, parotid duct and the transverse facial artery marked by arrows.

The asymmetric parotid inflammatory change is highlighted by the white boxes, with edema and phlegmon of the right parotid gland with enlarged cervical and parotid lymph nodes which is markedly asymmetric when compared to the left on these coronal reconstructions.
