Diverse clinical presentations of tubercular parotitis in children: case series with review of literature

Shruti Dhingr, Ruchika Juneja.

Abstract
Tuberculosis of the parotid gland is a rare entity in children. Manifestations can vary from acute parotitis to indolent benign parotid lesions, abscesses and fistulas in the parotid region. Diagnosis is challenging in the absence of constitutional symptoms and essentially non-contributory test reports. We discuss a series of six cases of parotid tuberculosis in children with different clinical presentations and management and review the literature on the subject.

Key words: Parotid; Tuberculosis; Children; Nontubercular mycobacteria; Abscess.
