Abstract

Tuberculosis of the parotid gland is rare, A 16-month-old US-born male infant with immigrant parents from Sudan presented to his primary care physician with periorbital cellulitis and preauricular lymphadenitis. He underwent incision and drainage of an abscess in the right intraparotid lymph node. The aspirate was positive for acid-fast bacilli by auramine-rhodamine stain and subsequently grew Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Antitubercular medications were started postoperatively.
