Book Chapter
Chapter 35 of the book "Peterson's Principles of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery" is presented. It examines the common epithelial salivary gland tumors in order to illustrate the process of salivary neoplasia management. It recommends supraomohyoid neck dissection for the treatment of intrabony tumors in patient whose neck has been opened for mandibular resection. It explains the nonsurgical approaches to the treatment of parotid gland stones.

    Warthin tumor (papillary cystadenoma lymphomatosum) is a benign salivary gland tumor involving almost exclusively the parotid gland. The lip is a very unusual location for this type of tumor, which develops only rarely in minor salivary glands. The case of 42-year-old woman with Warthin tumor...

    Crystals and crystalloids may be seen in salivary glands in association with tumors and cysts. Rarely, crystalloids may lead to granulomatous reaction mimicking neoplasm and infectious diseases. We present the case of an 81-year-old man with right parotid gland swelling and a clinical and...

    Bacground/Aim. Sjögren's syndrome is a chronic autoimmune systemic disease characterized by polyglandular tissue destruction, leading to keratoconjunctivitis sicca and xerostomia. These patients have 44-fold increased risk of developing salivary gland lymphoma, of which 80% are marginal zone...

    Objectives: The origin of strictures of Stensen's duct often remains unclear, but chronic recurrent parotitis may be one associated disease. Failure of conservative therapy leads to a recommendation of parotidectomy in a high percentage of cases. Nowadays, development of new, minimally invasive...
