Angiomyoma is a benign tumour arising from smooth muscle of blood vessel walls. These tumours are usually found in the lower extremities presenting as a painful mass. Angiomyoma of the preauricular area is rare, and only a few cases have been reported. Here, we report the case of a 56-year-old male patient with preauricular swelling for 30 years mimicking benign parotid neoplasm. A diagnosis of angiomyoma of the preauricular area was made on the basis of histopathology.
