Abstract

The authors present the case histories of 40 intraparotid haemangiomas, in 11 of which they achieved healing after radical surgical treatment (parotidectomy). Since 1971, the authors have adopted a conservative approach (not surgical), seeing that most of the cases involute spontaneously up to complete healing. None of the 29 cases treated conservatively has undergone exacerbations of the process, after the age of 6-9 months. No emergency surgical operations were required. © 1977 Georg Thieme Verlag, Stuttgart.
