Resumen:
We present a case report of a 25-year-old male patient who was complaining about a sensation and noise described as a ''sponge crunching'' in the right preauricular region and right ear that was more noticeable when inflating the cheeks. Under the clinical suspicion of a pneumoparotid case, a CT scan was performed. The study revealed the presence of air in the ductal system and within the gland. The patient was diagnosed with pneumoparotid and was treated conservatively. Herein, we review the literature and discussion the management of this uncommon condition. © 2020
