In this review of a clinical case we study the most frequent benign neoplasia of the main salivary glands. We present the case of a four-year relapse of a patient post-operated of a conservative total parotidectomy. We expose different opinions about this neoplasia, and the clinical case of a 50-year old female patient that presents a relapse to the parapharyngeal space, for which we used a trans-mandibular approach.
