  • Salivary Gland Disorder

    Viral infections are often associated with salivary gland pathology. Here we review the pathogenesis of HIV-associated salivary gland disease (HIV-SGD), a hallmark of diffuse infiltrative lymphocytosis syndrome. We investigate the presence and contributions of viral diseases to the pathogenesis of salivary gland[…][]

  • Pleomorphic Adenoma

    Histopathological characteristics of pleomorphic adenomas, especially of capsular alterations such as thin capsule areas, capsule-free regions, capsule penetration, satellite nodules, and pseudopodia in the different subtypes, are described. Prospective unselected series of 100 consecutive cases from 1997 to 2000.[…][]

  • Uveoparotid Fever

    The parotid gland is rarely affected by sarcoidosis (6% of all cases). If there is initial parotitis, and other major symptoms include fever, uveitis, or facial paralysis, the condition is referred to as Heerfordt's syndrome. The case presented here describes the diagnostic work-up and differentiation of swelling of[…][]

  • Necrotizing Sialometaplasia

    Virchows Arch. 2014 Aug;465(2):135-43. doi: 10.1007/s00428-014-1590-x. Epub 2014 May 27.

  • Xerostomia

    Xerostomia (Dry Mouth) Xerostomia is not a disease but can be a symptom of certain diseases. It can produce serious negative effects on the patients quality of life, affecting dietary habits, nutritional status, speech, taste, tolerance to dental prosthesis and increases susceptibility to dental caries. The increase[…][]

  • Malignant Neoplasm of the Salivary Gland

    There are no established protocols for the optimum surgical margin required for salivary gland malignancies. Factors including histologic diagnosis and TNM stage have been shown to be important in prognosis and survival outcome and mandate special consideration of margin size. Salivary cancers are treated[…][]

  • Oral Candidiasis

    This minimizes the recurrence potential of these lesions. [13] Biopsy of the major salivary gland should be avoided as biopsy of parotid salivary gland can lead to scarring[] Fine needle aspiration biopsy is done if abnormal lumps are found. [4] The biopsy needle removes a small core of gland tissue that is sent to the laboratory for analysis.[]

  • Transient Sarcoidosis

    The MRI scan revealed no intracranial abnormality but did however demonstrate diffusely enlarged parotid glands bilaterally.[] A follow up ultrasound of the parotids demonstrated fatty infiltration with no obvious abnormal area which could be biopsied.[]

  • Sialadenitis

    An ENT (ear, nose, and throat) specialist, or otolaryngologist, may diagnose Sjogren’s syndrome based on persistent symptoms of dry eyes and/or mouth, parotid gland enlargement[] , and abnormal blood test results.[] A lip biopsy can confirm the diagnosis. Sjogren’s syndrome is treated conservatively with symptomatic relief.[]
