Abstract: A 77-year-old female complained of sweating from her face anterio-inferiorly to her right ear for 5 years. One year previously, the patient developed transient anosmia, but ENT and MRI examinations revealed no pathology, and the anosmia cleared, though the sweating increased. The history revealed a right partial parotidectomy for a mixed salivary tumour 14 years previously.
