This book will serve as a complete reference guide for the totality of salivary gland (SG) disease. Focusing on the clues available to the practitioner during the patient examination, it will completely review and update the available data concerning all manner of SG conditions. Looking beyond the perspectives of surgery, imaging, pathology, or sialendoscopy in diagnosis and therapy, this book will provide all professionals interested in the head and neck extensive and detailed diagnostic information about each SG entity. Achieving an accurate diagnosis involves the use of multiple clinical tools (history, physical examination, imaging, serology, biopsy etc). The indication for and significance of each of these investigative procedures will be discussed, integrated and photographically illustrated in tandem with the diagnostic review of the relevant SG entity. Besides a diagnostic review of readily diagnosed SG entities (Sjogren’s, sialolithiasis, infection etc), the book willcover subjects whose diagnoses have been inadequately described (juvenile recurrent parotitis, sarcoid, radioactive iodine for thyroid cancer, pediatric Sjogren’s, etc) or never reviewed (middle ear surgery and saliva, Stensen’s duct dilatation, first bite syndrome, HIV paraparotid fat, etc) in other published texts. It will be organized by diagnosis.

Written by an expert in the field with over six decades of clinical experience, Clinical Management of Salivary Gland Disorders will call attention to the large number of presenting patients who can be categorized as “false-positives.” This includes a psychosomatic group with perceptual salivary complaints, patients with masseteric hypertrophy, paraglandular opacities misdiagnosed as sialoliths, dental caries thought to have a salivary origin and more. Finally, this book will offer thorough methodology for identifying and diagnosing these initially confusing problems. An exhaustive resource for the field of salivary gland complaints, this book will be useful to otolaryngologists, head/neck surgeons, plastic surgeons, oral medicine/oral pathology practitioners and residents, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, and dentists. Internists concerned with physical diagnosis of head/neck problems, neuroradiologists concerned with relating imaging results to a clinical salivary gland condition and nurse practitioners and dental hygienists will also find this book most helpful.
