Özet

A hitherto unreported duplication of the parotid duct in a 63-year-old man is reported. The ducts were found in the right cheek during cadaver dissection. The surrounding connective tissue of the ducts was removed and a photograph was taken. These two parotid ducts were then removed and fixed in a 10% formalin solution, embedded in paraffin blocks and the sections stained with hematoxylin eosin. The histologic findings showed that both had the normal ductal columnar epithelium. There was only one parotid duct in the left cheek.
