Kuttner tumour is benign, chronic, sclerosing sialadenitis that usually occurs in the submandibular gland and is regarded as a salivary gland neoplasm because of its clinical features. We describe a tumour arising from a minor salivary gland of the upper lip. To our knowledge, there are only two previously reported cases.

Background: Chronic sclerosing sialadenitis is a fibroinflammatory disease of the salivary glands, characteristically of the submandibular gland. One prior Asian study proposed that chronic sclerosing sialadenitis is a part of the spectrum of IgG4-associated disease. This association has not been confirmed in Western populations. We therefore, investigated the relationship between IgG4 and chronic sclerosing sialadenitis, and compared the histomorphologic features of this condition with those of...

Objective: Patients with autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) sometimes present with Mikulicz disease (MD); however, the clinical features regarding these AIP patients with MD have not yet been fully elucidated. Our aim is to study the clinical differences between AIP with and without MD. Methods: Twenty-eight AIP patients were divided into 2 groups, one with MD and one without it. The following factors having a possible association with the presence or absence of MD were investigated: sex; serum IgG a...

A 26-year-old woman was referred to the rheumatology clinic because of painful neck swelling associated with thirst and weight loss. Physical examination revealed submandibular-gland enlargement on both sides of the neck. Testing for antinuclear antibodies was positive, and the levels of serum complement were low; assays for antibodies to the Ro and La antigens were negative. A diagnostic procedure was performed.

: Uncertainty about the causes and natural history of salivary stones (sialoliths) and other obstructions is being dispelled by clinical and experimental research. Sialoliths are now shown to be secondary to chronic obstructive sialadenitis. Microscopic stones (sialomicroliths) accumulate during secretory inactivity in normal salivary glands and produce atrophic foci by obstruction. Microbes ascend the main salivary duct during secretory inactivity and proliferate in atrophic foci and cause spre...

A new concept of IgG4-related disease characterized by a high serum IgG4 level and tissue infiltration of IgG4-positive plasmacytes that can involve salivary glands has been proposed. In this article, 2 patients with IgG4-related sclerosing sialadenitis involving the submandibular glands are reported. One patient presented with bilateral and painless swelling of the submandibular glands. He had already been treated with systemic prednisolone owing to the occurrence of retrobulbar neuritis. Labor...

Background. To analyze clinical features and to discuss the modality of investigation and treatment of a series of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphomas. To investigate the prevalence of aberrant promoter methylation, responsible for gene inactivation, in a selected panel of genes potentially involved in the pathogenesis of B-cell malignancies as O6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT), p73, death-associated protein kinase (DAP-k). Methods. Nine patients with primary MALT lymp...

Hyper IgG4 disease or IgG4-related sclerosing/autoimmune disease is a multisystem condition characterized histologically by fibrosis, lymphoplasmacytic infiltration, and abundant IgG4 plasma cells associated with raised serum IgG4 levels. We present a case of salivary duct carcinoma of the parotid gland in a background of chronic sclerosing sialadenitis that also involved the submandibular gland with associated regional lymphadenopathy. The serology showed raised total IgG levels of 16.3 g/L (re...

We present 2 case reports highlighting the essential differences between Mikulicz syndrome and Mukulicz disease. A review of the literature appears to show some confusion over the terminology and we therefore also present an historical account of the evolution of the two terms and review their relative merits and relationship with other disorders. In conclusion, we would not advocate the use of the term Mikulicz syndrome and suggest that Mikulicz disease be replaced by the title ‘Benign Lymphoep...

Abstract Purpose Immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a newly defined fibro-inflammatory multisystemic condition defined by a triad of diagnostic criteria based on clinical presentation, biochemical and histopathological findings. Whereas some subsites of this disease have been well described in the literature so far (e.g. pancreas, kidneys, retroperitoneum, salivary glands), more recently identified anatomical sites of involvement in the head and neck are less well understood (e.g. no...

Chronic sclerosing sialadenitis may represent one of many manifestations of an immunoglobulin G4–related disease. However, existing studies typically consist of small patient cohorts rarely conducted in Western populations. The clinical behavior of chronic sclerosing sialadenitis, including follow-up data, warrants further study. Thus, we aimed to determine whether chronic sclerosing sialadenitis always presents as IgG4-related disease or associates with autoimmune diseases and to determine whic...

This study aimed to compare the differences and similarities in the clinical manifestations and treatment efficacy of IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) in patients with and without dacryoadenitis and sialoadenitis (DS). A total of 121 untreated IgG4-RD patients in Peking Union Medical College Hospital were enrolled in this study. The patients were divided into three groups: DS-predominant (group A), non-DS (group B), and DS with other internal organs affected (group C). The patients were followed u...

The major salivary glands can be affected by a variety of acute or chronic, systemic, and neoplastic conditions. Several modalities can be used for salivary gland imaging, each with its own advantages and limitations. The article reviews the optimal imaging modality for different clinical scenarios, the typical imaging appearance of commonly encountered pathologies, and seeks to provide a framework for generating an appropriate differential diagnosis. Additionally, with regard to neoplastic cond...

IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a rare fibroinflammatory condition that can affect almost any organ, characterized by swollen lesions and often by eosinophilia and elevated serum IgG4 concentrations. The diagnosis of IgG4-RD is a challenging task: in fact, single or multiple organs can be affected and clinical, serological, and histological findings can be heterogeneous. In IgG4-RD, the involvement of salivary glands is observed in 27% to 53% of patients. Several organ-specific conditions, now...

IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a newly recognized immune-mediated multisystemic disease characterized by a fibro-inflammatory condition with tissue infiltration of IgG4-positive plasma cells and often associated with elevated serum IgG4 levels. Typical renal involvement of IgG4-RD presents as tubulointerstitial nephritis (TIN), membranous or membranoproliferative nephropathy. We are presenting a case with combined IgG4 membranous nephropathy and TIN, as well as a literature review on pathophy...

IgG4-related disease is a systemic, inflammatory disorder typically involving multiple organ systems. Several eponymous conditions described previously in the clinical and radiology literature are now recognised to be part of the IgG4-related disease spectrum. This includes multiple manifestations in the head and neck region, which are the subject of this review. Imaging can occasionally suggest the specific diagnosis of IgG4 disease. More commonly, it will be included in a limited differential ...
