Imaging Findings

Contrast computed tomography (CT) imaging of the neck revealed bilateral enlarged parotid and submandibular glands with multiple intraparenchymal cysts (Figures 1 and 2). Punctate calcifications were scattered within the parotid glands, but no intraductal stones were present. Pertinent associated findings included bilateral enlarged level 1 and 2 cervical lymph nodes (Figure 3).
