Abstract

Parotid duct fistulas (PDFs) are rare and have various causes such as gunshot wounds and human and animal bites; they may also be congenital. We have not found previous publications on bilateral PDF. Our patient, although young, also had generalized pigmentation characteristic of aging and thick, dry, wrinkled skin, as well as pyoderma. Biochemical analysis was performed on discharge from the patient's face, and histopathologic and immunologic studies were done. the fistulas were treated by intraoral fistulization. Cephalosporins were given to the patient for 5 days postoperatively to threat the pyoderma.
