Background: Synchronous unilateral tumors in the parotid glands account for less than 5–10% of all salivary gland neoplasms. Mostly these are cystadenolymphomas, but tumors of different histological types can be found as well. In these cases it is often pleomorphic adenoma in combination with cystadenolymphoma. Ultrasound is the first choice imaging modality. Case report: We present two patients with two simultaneous tumors in a unilateral parotid gland. In each case, B-mode ultrasound

value for the vascular index values in pleomorphic adenoma and Warthin tumors.
The patients were between 6 and 84 years old (mean age: 48.24 ± 18.08). Thirty-seven parotid gland tumors in 37 patients (26 male, 11 female) were included. All parotid lesions were unilateral. The cytological/pathological diagnoses of the lesions were as follows: 14 pleomorphic adenomas, 16 Warthin tumors, 1 indistinct benign tumor, 1 benign lymphoid tissue, 1 adenoid cystic carcinoma, 1 secretory carcinoma, 2
