Özet

Tuberculosis is caused by a mycobacterium and is one of the most serious diseases in the world. Pulmonary involvement is the most common form of this condition. Primary tuberculosis of the parotid gland is rare. We report such a case in a 34-year-old man who presented with a painless preauricular mass on each side of his head. The clinical presentation, diagnosis, pathological findings and treatment are described.
