BACKGROUND: Postoperative parotitis is a well known entity which can develop in patients who undergo major abdominal
METHODS: We present a case of postoperative parotitis which occurred after a laparotomy for incisional hernia repair.
RESULTS: After estabilishing diagnosis by ultrasonography assessment and blood chemical tests, patient was successfully
treated by morphine discontinuing and antibiotics therapy.
CONCLUSION: Beside sialolithiasis, sitting position or dehydratation we suggest that morphine could play a substantial
role in the development of postoperative parotitis.
