1/3. Sialosis and necrotising sialometaplasia in bulimia; a case report.

    Salivary gland involvement, particularly salivary gland enlargement (sialosis), is a recognised complication in bulimia. We report the rare association of sialosis and necrotising sialometaplasia with bulimia in the same patient. The association of sialosis and necrotising sialometaplasia in the same patient with bulimia has been reported previously in two patients and may be coincidental, but the appearance in this additional patient suggests it may be prudent to explore this further.

2/3. Necrotizing sialometaplasia associated with bulimia: case report and literature review.

    Necrotizing sialometaplasia (NSM) is a self-limiting disorder affecting mainly the minor salivary glands. The significance of NSM resides in its clinical and histopathological resemblance to carcinoma. Few cases of NSM associated with eating disorders have been reported to date. We present here the clinical features and histomorphology of an additional case of bulimia-associated NSM closely mimicking an invasive carcinoma. A high index of suspicion and good communication between clinician and pathologist are essential in recognizing this entity and preventing unnecessary surgical therapy.

3/3. Necrotizing sialometaplasia in two patients with bulimia and chronic vomiting.

    The purpose of this report was to present two unusual cases of necrotizing sialometaplasia of the hard palate, in which the patients were suffering from bulimia and chronic self-induced vomiting. It emphasizes the importance of confirming the diagnosis by incisional biopsy and discusses local mucosal trauma as a possible etiologic factor.
