Abstract

Background: Surgical excision of the submandibular gland is the definite treatment of various pathologies of submandibular gland. The surgical excision is usually performed via lateral transcervical approach which is the standard approach, which may result in hypertrophic scar or keloid formation in a patient with known history.

Case Presentation: A 26 years old female patient presented with complaint of swelling at right submandibular region, associated with colicky pain. After required examination and investigations a final diagnosis of submandibular gland sialadenitis was made. An interesting thing to note was that the patient had known tendency of keloid formation and the option of remote access robotic surgery for submandibular gland excision was suggested.

Conclusion: Submental and submandibular region is the most common site for keloid development in neck region. Robotic assisted submandibular gland excision has been successfully performed and has definite advantage in terms of cosmesis.
