Lipiodol is a lipid based contrast medium and is very useful in sialography. It gives very fine images and clearly shows the details of the gland. It is viscous and has a relatively high iodine content. However, lipiodol UF drops sometimes remain in the salivary gland and in the adjacent tissues for a long time and may cause irritation. We report a case where lipiodol UF leaked from Stensen's duct and was not resorbed after a period of 70 months.
