1/136. Lymphoepithelial cyst with crystalloid formation. Cytologic features of two cases.

    BACKGROUND: The presence of amylase crystalloids (AC) in cystic lesions of the parotid gland is a rare occurrence and has been diagnosed to date as sialadenitis. We report the first two cases of parotid lymphoepithelial cyst (LC) containing this type of crystalloid. CASES: Case 1, a 56-year-old male, presented with a 3-cm parotid cyst. Fine needle aspiration (FNA) was performed on the mass. Smears showed numerous crystalloids identical to those described as crystallized amylase. Case 2, a 36-year-old female, had a 2-cm parotid mass. FNA smears exhibited the same features as did case 1. The two patients were treated with superficial parotidectomy, and an LC containing AC was diagnosed in both cases. CONCLUSION: When the above findings are present on FNA of parotid gland, the diagnosis of LC must be considered. ( info)

2/136. A case of coprophagia presenting with sialadenitis.

    PRESENTATION: a 94-year-old woman with dementia was admitted to an acute geriatric ward with increasing confusion and falls. On two occasions she developed submandibular masses. Faeces were aspirated from her mouth and a diagnosis made of recurrent submandibular sialadenitis secondary to coprophagia. OUTCOME: the submandibular mass settled with antibiotics and oral care. coprophagia was not observed on the ward, but faecal smearing was noted. With regular toileting, this behaviour ceased and sialadenitis did not recur. ( info)

3/136. Synchronous pleomorphic adenomas of the major salivary glands: a case report.

    The presentation of multiple distinct tumors in major salivary glands is rare. Although the most common tumor with bilateral synchronous or metachronous development is the Warthin tumor, pleomorphic adenomas have been diagnosed simultaneously as well. We report the case of a female patient who was diagnosed with pleomorphic adenomas in the right parotid and submandibular glands, concomitant with sialolithiasis affecting the submandibular gland. This patient had been exposed to head and neck radiotherapy in childhood, which may have played a role in the development of her tumors. A review of the relevant literature is included. ( info)

4/136. Parotid sialolithiasis.

    This report documents an unusual case of buccal mucosa swelling due to a giant (25 x 13 mm), parotid duct sialolith. review of the literature disclosed that this is the largest parotid sialolith ever reported. diagnostic imaging and treatment are described. ( info)

5/136. Chronic sclerosing sialadenitis of the submandibular gland associated with idiopathic retroperitoneal fibrosis.

    We report a case of a 57-year-old man who developed a fibrosclerosing lesion in the submandibular gland and idiopathic retroperitoneal fibrosis (IRF) involving the unilateral periureteral region within a year. Both lesions were resected surgically because of the suspicion of neoplasm. Pathologic examination revealed similar histologic and immunohistochemical features for both lesions, namely, fibrosclerosis with prominent hyalinizing collagen bundles and proliferation of myofibroblastic cells, and a non-neoplastic reactive nature. There was infiltration by lymphocytes with prominent lymph follicles, plasma cells and macrophages. The histologic and immunohistochemical findings suggest that the two lesions were of a similar pathogenesis, which was possibly mediated by macrophages. We think that the present case may be an unusual form of multifocal fibrosclerosis. Although sialolithiasis is thought to be a major pathogenic factor for chronic sclerosing sialadenitis of the submandibular gland, the present case suggests that certain cases might have an etiology similar to IRF.

6/136. Sialolithiasis: the radiolucent ones.

    Radiolucent calculi are discussed. Three cases are presented, with a sialographic interpretation of each. Recent studies show that radiolucent calculi in general and parotid gland sialolithiasis in particular occur more frequently than was previously believed. ( info)

7/136. Parotid duct carcinoma arising in bilateral chronic sialadenitis.

    It is well recognized that, in general, chronic inflammation can predispose to malignant change. There is however, to our knowledge, no previously reported association between chronic obstructive sialadenitis and salivary gland epithelial malignancy. We describe here the first reported example in the English literature of a salivary duct carcinoma arising in a parotid gland with a long history of chronic obstructive sialadenitis. It is possible that a causal relationship exists between the two conditions. If this were the case then non-surgically treated chronic obstructive sialadenitis patients may well warrant careful clinical follow-up. ( info)

8/136. Isolated bilateral submandibular abscesses in a preterm infant: a case report.

    Isolated submandibular suppurative sialadenitis in the newborn is a rare entity. Only six cases have been reported in the literature. A rare case of isolated bilateral submandibular abscesses in a premature infant is presented. The possible etiology, diagnosis and management of this rare condition are discussed. ( info)

9/136. Fine-needle aspiration of cytomegalovirus sialadenitis in a patient with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome: pitfalls of diff-quik staining.

    A case of cytomegalovirus (CMV) sialadenitis in a patient with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) diagnosed by fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) is reported. Although a diagnosis of CMV sialadenitis can be established on Diff-Quik-stained slides, the characteristic viral changes are the best appreciated on slides stained by the Papanicolaou (Pap) technique. Differential pitfalls are discussed. It needs to be stressed that clinically unsuspected diagnosis of CMV infection may uncover congenital or acquired defects of cellular immunity, and particularly AIDS. Diagn. Cytopathol. 2000;22:101-103. ( info)

10/136. Oral swelling in sjogren's syndrome.

    A case is reported of a 69-year-old female with sjogren's syndrome who presented with a problem of interest to the oral surgeon. The clinical features and cryosurgical management of a rare cause of palatal swelling are described. The confusion that exists in the literature concerning the nomenclature of chronic inflammatory salivary gland lesions is discussed. ( info)
