11/18. An unusual submandibular mass--cat scratch disease: report of case.

    A case of cat scratch disease, initially considered a malignant disease or an aggressive inflammatory lesion, is reported. The lesion was excised and the characteristic disease pattern was established for this patient. The paper discusses the natural history of the disease and presents an extensive listing of swellings in the lateral part of the neck.

12/18. head and neck manifestations of mycobacteria in the absence of pulmonary disease.

    Mycobacterial infections, once relatively rare in north america have recently shown an upsurge with the influx of Asian and African immigrants. The infections are usually due to M. tuberculosis and present with pulmonary symptoms. However, an uncommon presentation is that of a mass in the head and neck region without any pulmonary manifestations. Although these infections are usually secondary to invasion by "atypical" mycobacteria, unusual presentations due to mycobacterium tuberculosis have been noted. case reports depicting the very rare presentations of M. tuberculosis in the thyroglossal duct cyst, parotid, and submandibular lymph node are described. A very unusual case of atypical mycobacteria in the larynx is noted and cervical adenitis is also included. The initial subtle presentation emphasizes the importance of mycobacteria in the differential diagnosis of lesions in the head and neck region.

13/18. cat-scratch disease of the submandibular region. A case report.

    A case report of cat-scratch disease manifest as submandibular lymphadenopathy has been presented. The etiology, histopathology, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and complications of cat-scratch disease have been discussed. cat-scratch disease should be considered in the differential diagnosis of all equivocal cases of unilateral lymphadenopathy of the head and neck.

14/18. submandibular gland mucocele of the extravasation type. Report of two cases.

    The clinical and radiological differential diagnosis of cystic lesions of the head and neck region can be difficult. We report two cases of submandibular gland mucoceles presenting as cystic masses in the submandibular region. The imaging characteristics and differential diagnosis are discussed.

15/18. Ultrasound of Kimura's disease.

    Kimura's disease is found almost exclusively in Orientals. It commonly affects the head and neck region and mainly involves the major salivary glands and regional lymph nodes. Its appearances can be mistaken for malignant disease. We present two patients with Kimura's disease. In one patient the disease involved the soft tissues and parotid gland, and in another the submandibular gland. Both patients demonstrated lymphadenopathy in the submandibular, submental areas and upper cervical region. Both patients had ultrasound examination of the salivary glands and neck. One of the patients also had contrast-enhanced CT and MRI. The clinical, pathological and imaging findings of Kimura's disease are discussed.

16/18. Multimodality imaging of cervicofacial actinomycosis.

    actinomycosis is an uncommon chronic disease usually caused by actinomyces israelii. It affects the soft tissue mainly but sometimes spreads to involve salivary glands, bone, or even the skin of the face and neck. Five cases have been seen in our department. Several imaging modalities were used to assist in making the diagnosis. The cases are presented and the literature reviewed. ultrasonography was found to be a useful diagnostic tool especially in developing the differential diagnosis.

17/18. Adenoid cystic carcinoma of the sublingual gland--an unusual presentation.

    A case of adenoid cystic carcinoma of the sublingual salivary gland presenting as recurrent submandibular salivary gland swelling is described. The obstructive symptoms were due to involvement of the ipsilateral submandibular duct by the tumour. A review of the literature suggests that this is the first such case to be reported. The importance of intra-oral examination when investigating swellings of the neck is emphasised.

18/18. Complicated neonatal submandibular suppurative sialadenitis.

    Acute suppurative infection of salivary glands in the neonatal period is a rare entity; and almost always involves the parotid glands. A rare case of neck abscess in association with right submandibular suppurative sialadenitis in a 7-day-old baby is presented. The possible etiology, diagnosis, and management of this uncommon disease are discussed.
