Investigation in 16 patients attending the stomatology outpatients clinic over the last 18 years has enabled definition of a particular radioclinical entity that has been named "idiopathic bilateral salivary megacanal". This generally parotid affection occurs in patients between 50 and 60 years, the onset usually being by an episode of sialodochitis. In(More)
A statistical study compared a group of 38 patients with clinically and bacteriologically confirmed bacterial pneumonia with a control group of 33 subjects. Results facted to demonstrate any significant role for buccodental infection in the genesis of bronchopulmonary infections capable of inciting stomatologists to adopt drastic measures with respect to(More)
A recent publication noted the apparent lack of serious complications of dilatation of salivary canals, based on a review of 16 cases. This is contested by the report of three cases of dilatation of Stensen's duct complicated by lithiasis and stenosis, with associated canalar pseudo-cysts. Surgical excision was required and allowed study of histopathology(More)
The enlarged parotid glands seen in both poor nutritional states and in women with amenorrhea have always been considered to be separate entities. Thirteen observations are reported of a syndrome consisting of dysorexia (or anorexia), swelling of the salivary glands (sialomegaly), and menstrual disturbances (hypomenorrhea or amenorrhea). This syndrome can(More)
No one method of salivary flowmetry has been found to be practical, reliable and fully significant. Consequently, the diagnosis of salivary gland failure remains uncertain and imprecise even though the diagnostic question is often raised. A simplified and effective weight measurement could be more widely used. Saliva is sampled easily with small compresses(More)
Two new cases of pseudo-tumoral parotid benign lymphoepithelial lesion serve as the basis for a review of the clinical aspects of "Godwin tumour". This is a pseudo-tumoral parotid swelling of non-characteristic clinical appearance which has the radiological findings of a systemic type sialogram ("punctate marks" and diffuse parenchymatous spots).(More)
Numerous techniques have been used for imaging salivary glands including standard radiography, scintigraphy, sialography, echography, computed tomography and finally NMI. These different techniques each have their own indications or complementary role. We therefore developed a protocol for using the different imaging techniques according to the different(More)
