1/19. The value of magnetic resonance imaging in a fistula of Wharton's duct.

    A 30-year-old woman developed a fistula of the Wharton's duct following excision of the submandibular gland. The contribution of conventional fistulography, MRI and MRI fistulography in detecting the exact extent of the fistula is discussed.

2/19. Cervical tumor by ectopic salivary gland.

    Heterotopic salivary tissue is a rare lesion, although most authors agree that anomalous embryologic development of salivary tissue is the main cause. One case of cervical tumor by ectopic salivary gland is reported, and existent literature is reviewed. A 26-year-old woman was operated on for a cystic tumor in the midline of the neck diagnosed as thyroglossal cyst in the hyoid region. After Sistrunk operation, the recurrence was immediate. A second operation was performed, and a solid tumor located between muscles of the tongue was resected. A long tract opening in recurrent cervical cystic tumor was also removed. No recurrence was evident at 1 year after surgery. Pathological examination of the excised mass revealed an ectopic salivary gland with serous and mucinous acini located between muscles of the tongue. This is a rare case report of a cervical fistula by ectopic salivary gland surrounded by muscles of the tongue draining into a cystic tumor in the hyoid midline lesion. recurrence of thyroglossal cyst after a correct surgical resection must be suspected as an ectopic salivary tissue. Also when a cystic neck tumor is present, an ectopic salivary gland must be suspected.

3/19. Treatment of sialocele: an experimental study in dogs.

    A patient had a delayed complication of parotid trauma, namely a sialocele. He was successfully treated by repeated needle aspiration of the fluid. An experiment using 30 dogs was then done. On each dog, one parotid gland was used as a control, the other parotid was treated by one of three methods that the author felt would be most satisfactory. Needle aspiration was found to be the simplest and the most effective manner of treatment, because the proximal duct quickly becomes obstructed with the cessation of salivary flow, disappearance of the sialocele, and later parotid atrophy. One patient and 30 dogs are surely not conclusive proof of what would be proper treatment, but the author hopes that this paper will stimulate otolaryngologists to try this method if confronted with a similar problem.

4/19. Treatment of postparotidectomy salivary fistula with botulinum toxin.

    We report on the successful treatment with botulinum toxin type A local injections of a salivary fistula that occurred after superficial parotidectomy. In a 58-year-old woman, transcutaneous discharge of saliva in the preauricular region had persisted in spite of 2 surgical revisions. Moreover, facial weakness and synkinesis had developed as a result of an iatrogenic lesion that had occurred at the time of primary surgery and required immediate reanastomosis of the main nerve trunk. Botulinum toxin A was injected into the deep lobe of the remaining parotid gland under ultrasonographic guidance. Additionally, botulinum toxin A was injected into the left orbicularis oculi muscle in order to improve the synkinesis. No adverse effects were observed. The sialorrhea was stopped for 11 months, and the synkinesis of the facial muscles was reduced significantly for 4 months. We conclude that botulinum toxin A injection is a successful alternative for the treatment of chronic salivary fistula.

6/19. Congenital extraoral fistula from an auxiliary parotid gland.

    A rare case of an auxiliary major salivary gland in the parotid region with an external fistula is reported. Clinical findings and management are described, and relevant embryology and etiology are discussed.

7/19. The role of botulinum toxin in postparotidectomy fistula treatment. A technical note.

    PURPOSE: Parotid fistula is a well-known complication of parotidectomy or penetrating injury of the parotid gland. The management of parotid fistula has been controversial, and numerous conservative and surgical treatment methods have been described. methods: We report 3 cases of parotid fistula after partial parotidectomy, which were treated by botulinum toxin injection under electromyographic control into the residual substance of parotid gland. RESULTS: Complete healing of the fistula was achieved with a single botulinum toxin treatment in all patients. No side effects were observed after the treatment. The patients are disease-free after 21, 18, and 14 months, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: In the considered cases, the localized injection of botulinum toxin into the parotid gland resulted to an effective and long-lasting treatment of postparotidectomy fistula.

8/19. Submandibular sialogram performed through a Wharton's duct fistula: technical adaptation of conventional technique.

    We report a case of submandibular duct fistula in which a sialogram was performed through the fistulous opening after attempt of sialography through the Wharton's duct had failed. To our knowledge, this technical modification in obtaining a sialogram has not been described previously in scientific literature. Blunt-tipped needles and polythene catheters are commonly used for cannulation of the submandibular duct orifice for obtaining a sialogram. However, in this case, a larger gauge metallic cannula was employed to opacify the ductal system through the fistula.

9/19. Parotid duct communicating with a labial pit and ectopic salivary cyst.

    Labial pits are usually described as blind epidermal invaginations of lip mucosa with occasional drainage of minor salivary gland secretions. A case of an aberrant parotid duct in communication with both a unilateral, commissural labial pit and an interposed salivary cyst is presented. A 7-year-old boy who had experienced lifelong clear drainage from a congenital pit at his right oral commissure developed fever, pain, and a submucosal mass of the right cheek over a 6-week period. A preoperative sialogram through the pit demonstrated a communication between the oral commissure fistula, an intervening salivary cyst, and a proximal tract from the cyst to the parotid gland. An en bloc resection of the pit, fistula tract, and cyst was performed through a transoral approach. The dissection was medial to the buccinator muscle. There has been no recurrence of the cyst after 1 year follow-up. A description of labial pits and parotid duct anomalies is presented; however, to our knowledge, this combination of anomalies has not been previously described.

10/19. Giant salivary calculi: an orocervical fistula caused by a submandibular gland calculus.

    Large calculi of the salivary glands are rare. They may go undetected for many years. The authors report three cases of giant submandibular gland calculi. In one patient, the calculus was an incidental finding. In all patients, the mass was in the substance of the gland; in one, the configuration of the mass was unusual and it had eroded through the floor of the buccal cavity forming an orocervical fistula (the first such report) and in another the mass occupied a small portion of Wharton's duct. The histopathologic findings in all three cases were of nonspecific chronic inflammation. All the patients made a smooth recovery and had no complaints at follow-up.
