Congenital parotid fistulae are referred to by Mason and Chisolm who quote from Thoma, Oral Pathology (1970). There are few reported cases in the literature describing the presence of aberrant or ectopic ducts of the parotid gland. The aim of the present paper is to report the case of an aberrant Stensen duct with cutaneous orifice and chirurgical treatment realized.

Key words: Congenital parotid fistulae, aberrant Stensen duct.
