We experienced a case with a salivary cyst arising from a parotid duct injury due to multiple stab wounds to the face. In our case, the parotid duct injury was in front of the masseter muscle. We performed surgery on the central stump side of the parotid duct and cyst opening to the oral cavity under general anesthesia. Moreover, postoperative stenosis of the wound opening was prevented by making a valve flap from buccal mucous membrane to drain the wound for 3 weeks . No cyst has recurred a year after the operation.
