Abstract

We report a case of 68-year-old Chinese gentleman with no known medical illness who came presenting with swelling over the right pre auricular region which had been present for one year. Rare anatomical variant of facial nerve identified during a routine parotidectomy. An explanation for the rare variant for the qualitative difference in the facial nerve course in parotid gland is postulated, based on the known anatomical variations.
