Ultrasonography-guided minimally invasive removal of parotid calculi: A prudent approach

February 24, 2016  |  Uma Patnaik, MS, DNB; Sreejith Nair, MS; Atul Mishra, MD

Abstract

The trend in modern salivary calculi surgery is toward minimally invasive procedures because these benign conditions do not warrant open salivary gland surgery. Since ultrasonography is readily available, highly specific, noninvasive, and cost-effective, we have used an...

An unusual tongue base mass in an infant: Tongue base sialolipoma

December 14, 2015  |  Dawn T. Teo, MBBS; Romaine F. Johnson, MD, MPH; John E. McClay, MD

Abstract

Sialolipoma is a rare tumor that occurs in the head and neck. We present a case arising from a minor salivary gland in an infant. The 6-month-old infant presented with difficulty swallowing, frequent reflux, and snoring that had been worsening several weeks before presentation...

Submandibular gland megalith eroding the floor of the mouth: A case report

December 20, 2013  |  Sourav Singh, MDS; Smita Singh, MDS

Abstract

Sialolithiasis is the most common pathologic condition affecting the salivary glands. However, large sialoliths (megaliths) are considered rare. The submandibular glands are more susceptible to stone formation than are the other salivary glands. We describe the case of a 55-...

Mucocele: Retention and extravasation types

Abstract

We report a case of histology-proven pleomorphic adenoma of the parapharyngeal space in a 20-year-old man. This case was unusual in that a massive amount of dystrophic calcification was scattered throughout the tumor. The patient underwent successful surgical resection, and he...

A case of a giant submandibular gland calculus perforating the floor of the mouth

June 4, 2012  |  Raffaele Rauso, MD; Giulio Gherardini, MD, PhD; Paolo Biondi, MD; Gianpaolo Tartaro, MD; Giuseppe Colella, MD, DDS

Abstract

Sialolithiasis is characterized by the obstruction of salivary gland secretion by a calculus. It is associated with swelling, pain, and infection of the affected gland. More than 80% of all salivary calculi occur in the...

Poorly differentiated small-cell neuroendocrine carcinoma of the submandibular gland: A case report

April 1, 2012  |  Mary Scaduto, MD, Laura Matrka, MD, Manisha Shah, MD, Paul Wakely Jr., MD, and Enver Ozer, MD

Abstract

Neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC) is uncommon in the head and neck and rare in the salivary glands. In the latter location, it may manifest as pain or a palpable mass. These tumors can be quite aggressive, with a tendency toward recurrence and regional and distant metastasis....

An analysis of salivary gland neoplasms: A 12-year, single-institution experience in Turkey

March 1, 2012  |  Demet Etit, MD, Nese Ekinci, MD, Ayca Tan, MD, Deniz Altinel, MD, and Filiz Dag, MD

Abstract.

The epidemiology of salivary gland tumors worldwide is not very well defined. Although many studies on this subject have been undertaken, the data are generally focused on specific topics such as parotid gland neoplasms or tumors of the major salivary glands. We conducted a...

Abstract

The aim of this prospective study was to improve the quality of life of and reduce morbidity for patients with ectodermal dysplasia by assessing their actual and potential ENT pathologies, and offering methods of prevention and treatment. The study was conducted between 2006...

Myoepithelioma of the vallecula: A case report

July 14, 2011  |  Wassim Kermani, MD, Malek Belcadhi, MD, Moncef Ben Ali, MD, Badreddine Sriha, MD, and Kamel Bouzouita, MD

Abstract

Myoepitheliomas are rare and generally benign neoplasms that account for fewer than 1% of all salivary gland tumors. A myoepithelioma neoplasm is almost entirely composed of myoepithelial cells and is most frequently located in the parotid gland and in the minor salivary glands...
