両側顎下腺に生じた線維素性唾液管炎 (Kussmaul's disease) の1例 A case of sialodochitis fibrinosa (Kussmaul's disease) bilaterally affecting the submandibular glands
Sialodochitis fibrinosa (Kussmaul's disease) is a rare disease characterized by recurrent swelling of the salivary glands due to obstruction of the duct system by a fibrinous plug.This paper describes a 58-year-old woman with sialodochitis fibrinosa bilaterally affecting the submandibular glands. The patient had recurrent swelling of the submandibular glands. Histopathological examination revealed numerous eosinophils and epithelial cells in a fibrinous plug extruding from Wharton's ducts. Symptoms were relieved by enlargement of theorifice of the ducts, irrigation of the submandibular glands with saline, and administration of antiallergic drugs.
