Case Report

Recurrent Parotitis in Children

NW Li, WM Chan, YW Kwan, CW Leung


Recurrent parotitis of childhood is the second most common disease of salivary glands in children next to mumps. It is defined as recurrent parotid inflammation that is non-obstructive and non-suppurative. However, the aetiology and management of this disease remains controversial. We report a series of 5 children presenting with this condition who were investigated by ultrasonography and sialography. All of them were managed conservatively. The aetiology, diagnosis and treatment of this condition is reviewed. A management plan for this disease is formulated to prevent over-investigated and over-treated situations.
