MATERIAL AND METHODS: We review 48 patients with parotid tumors that underwent surgery during 1997-2004. The clinical and histogical features are reviewed. RESULTS: Among these 48, there were 12 cases of metastatic tumors to the parotid (25%). The pathohistological analysis of these tumors revealed that 8 were epidermoid carcinoma (66%), 1 patient was a melanoma (8%), 2 lymphomas below clavicules (16%) and 1 paMezcla de la glándula parótida tumortient with a metastasis of a primary renal cancer. All patients underwent parotidectomy and 10 also cervical neck dissection (6 cases showed cervical metastases). 8 patients received radiotherapy after surgery. CONCLUSIONS: In our study parotid metastases are relatively common in patients submitted for parotid surgery. Often the site of origin of the primary tumor is the cial skin, and the primary tumors most commonly are melanomas or squamous-cell carcinomas, but it is possible distant primary tumors below clavicules.
