The incidence of solitary neurofibroma of the facial nerve originating from the parotid region is extremely low, and there are two cases reported in Korea to our knowledge. We report a case of neurofibroma in parotid gland in a 17-year-old male. The patient had a slow growing, nontender parotid mass on the right side without facial paralysis & lymphadenopathy. He had systemic neurofibromatosis and family history. CT scan showed a 3x3cm sized eliptical, well demarkated mass that was located in the anterior portion of the superficial lobe and outside of masseter muscle. The mass was well-enhanced and surgically removed with minimal nerve injury. Histopathologic examination indicated neurofibroma. Thus, we report this case to discuss intraparotid neurofibroma compared with Schwannoma.
