An important differential diagnosis of the present case would be phlebolithiasis. Phleboliths are calcified thrombi found within vascular channels.
Such cases may be mistaken with other local diseases that show calcifications, such as phlebolithiasis. The management of such cases is not straight-forward, and superficial parotidectomy may be inevitable.
