Abstract: Parotid fistulas are rare and painful post operative complications of the maxillofacial region. Parotid fistulas due to the injury of the stensons duct can be identified on table and treated through primary repair, if not recognized it can lead to salivary fistula and sialocele formation which cannot heal spontaneously because of continuous flow of saliva. Early detection and treatment is necessary so as to prevent wound dehiscence and infection.
