Salivary fistula after a traumatic injury in the buccal region is not common. It is most commonly encountered in injuries involving the pre auricular region or soft tissues along the course of the parotid duct. It is more frequent in the parotid because its anatomical location is superficial; traumatic salivary fistulae of the other two major salivary glands are rare. This report presents an unusual case of a salivary fistula that occurred following trauma to the infraorbital region and drained into the inferior fornix of the left eye. A review of cases reported in the literature is presented. This is the only case of such a presentation the authors have found after a thorough search of the relevant English language literature.
