Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors originating
from the parotid gland are extremely rare. A 76-yearold
male patient underwent an incisional biopsy for an
ulcerated mass in the anteroinferior aspect of the left
auricle. The diagnosis was made as malignant mesenchymal
tissue sarcoma, but the patient refused
treatment. Upon progressive growth of the mass within
two months, he underwent a partial parotid gland
resection. After three months, he was referred to our
clinic with an aggressively growing parotid mass. Total
parotidectomy and radical neck dissection were performed.
Histopathological diagnosis was malignant
peripheral nerve sheath tumor. Following radiotherapy,
has been under follow-up for five years.
