Infantile recurrent parotitis is a disease characterized by unilateral or bilateral parotid swelling. It appears in childhood and usually disappears during adolescence. The objective is to present this rare disease which has an easy treatment and diagnosis. We report two cases of this disease from our hospital. This condition can be treated with outpatient treatment, with analgesics, anti-inflammatory drugs and, if there is bacterial infection, also with antibiotics. As additional tests, blood tests and ultrasound are recommended. It is a disease with good prognosis and simple treatment. Differential diagnosis is very important. It usually disappears as the patient approaches the adolescence.

Keywords: Recovery. Ultrasonography. Recurrent parotitis.
