    Abstract

    Background: Postrhydectomy sialocele is a rare complication. The usual treatment uses prolonged drainage. The use of antisialogogues has been described previously, but has potential side effects. Transdermal scopolamine SCOPODERM TTS is indicated for the prevention of motion sickness and also has antisialogugue action. Methods: An interventional case report is presented. Results: The application of transdermal scopolamine SCOPODERM TTS resulted in resolution of a postrhydectomy sialocele within 6 days. Conclusion: Transdermal scopolamine delivery should be considered as an option for the treatment of postrhidectomy parotid fistulas.
