Abstract
Parotid sialolithiasis is a rare pathologic disorder when compared to those of the submandibular salivary glands. Furthermore, infection arising parotid sialolithiasis is very rare to be to be a causative factor for the development of cutaneous parotid fistulae. Only 3 cases had been reported earlier in which these salivary stones expelled spontaneously through the related skin fistulae with total remission of all signs and symptoms of the affected gland. A case of two parotid stones inducing inflammation, infection, and discharging cutaneous fistula in a 77 years old Saudi male that had been initially misdiagnosed spontaneously extruded through the cutaneous fistula with total remission of all symptoms will be presented.
