Such presentation around the parotid region yet to be reported. This case report describes a rare presentation of a neonatal venolymphatic malformation on the parotid duct. A 4-week-old termly delivered male infant referred to by a general practitioner bruising over the left buccal area for 1 day from non-consanguine healthy parents. On examination a bluish discoloration in the buccal mucosa over a firm mildly tender area without signs of inflammation was seen.

The child has been referred to the vascular malformation clinic and plastic surgical clinic in a tertiary care hospital for follow-up.
