Parotid duct sialocele is a salivary cavity arising at the expense of parotid duct. Facial trauma is the most common cause of this rare condition. If left untreated, a sialocele may develop into a significantly large facial swelling. Fistula formation may occur, often draining extraorally. We report a case of Parotid duct sialocele that was assessed by sialography and ultrasonogarphy and was managed by placement of intraductal cannula for fifteen days till duct was found patent. We also discuss various treatment options of this condition in this case report.
