The purpose of this study is to analyze BK viral infection in salivary gland diseases; specifically, to determine a definitive relationship between BK Virus and HIV associated salivary gland disease (HIVSGD). Participants are adults HIV+SGD+ who will be randomized 1:1 to receive BK Virus antiviral (ciprofloxacin) or placebo for 28 days. Salivary function/protein secretion will be correlated with BK polyomavirus titers. We expect that patients with HIV+SGD+ will have elevated oral BK polyomavirus viral loads and will benefit from Ciprofloxacin ...

EPIDEMIOLOGY OF HIV ASSOCIATED SALIVARY GLAND DISEASE AND ENLARGEMENT. Head and neck lesions associated with HIV arise in over 50% of HIV- positive patients and occur in nearly 80% of all patients with AIDS.4,5 The average prevalence of HIV associated salivary gland disease in Africa was estimated to be 19%,6 with a study from Tanzania reporting prevalence to be as high as 47%.7 In other developing countries such as Thailand, the prevalence of HIV associated salivary gland disease is low at 1%.6 Prevalence of salivary gland enlargement in HIV-infected patients as reported from European and North America studies is about 1%-10%,8 with BLEC present in 3%-6% of these cases.4,9 In a recent South African study, 23.3% of patients were diagnosed with BLEC.10 Reasons for the high prevalence rates of HIV- associated salivary gland disease in Africa are unknown. It may be due to the presence of HLA-DR5 and untreated advanced stage AIDS in Africans.6 Malnutrition is rife in many African countries and this ...
Parotid lumps may pose a diagnostic dilemma that could be helped by classifying patients into one of five groups. Many of the conditions that involve the parotid glands evolve insidiously, and diagnostic delay is a common problem.. Parotid gland disease can be broadly broken down into five categories: obstructive causes; infection; autoimmune disorders; underlying systemic disorders; and tumours. It is also helpful to consider the presenting symptoms in terms of either single or multi-gland involvement, and the type of swelling present (recurrent swelling, diffuse swelling or a well-defined lump - see table 1), as this information helps differentiation between the five diagnostic categories of disease. Age also has a bearing on the likely cause of parotid disease: infective causes are more common in children; obstructive, inflammatory and benign tumours predominate in middle age; and cancerous lumps are prevalent in old age.. Two major advances in recent years have changed the management of ...
The algorithm for imaging of the salivary glands depends on the clinical scenario with which the patient presents to the clinician. Ultrasound has been increasingly used in recent years and thanks to high performance, easy to use apparatus, it can now be used for exploration of the salivary glands. This non invasive, painless and relatively inexpensive examination provides rapid visualisation of the salivary glands and is a useful adjunct to computed tomography and magnetic risonance imaging examination, particularly in tumour pathology. In recent years, publications have highlighted the potential uselfulness of salivary gland ultrasonography as a simple and non-invasive adjunctive test for the detection of gland involvement in Sjögrens syndrome (SS). SS is a chronic inflammatory disease of the salivary glands characterised by focal lymphocytic infiltrates that cause progressive destruction of the acinar structures. The findings of a previous study lead us to believe, in agreement with other ...
Objectives: The objectives of this study were to investigate the feasibility of clinical application of magnetic resonance (MR) virtual endoscopy as a presurgical procedure before sialoendoscopy and to evaluate its value in the diagnosis of obstructive salivary gland diseases and preoperative visualization of endoluminal views.. Study Design: This study presents our initial experience to use MR virtual endoscopy for the presurgical visualization of salivary duct lumen and ductal pathologies in comparison to the sialoendoscopy findings in a feasibility study.. Methods: Six consecutive patients with suspected obstructive salivary gland diseases underwent MR sialography with a three-dimensional fast imaging using steady-state acquisition. The three-dimensional MR data were transferred to an independent workstation and were postprocessed with navigator software to generate three-dimensional reconstruction and virtual endoscopic images. The fly-through mode was used to imitate the sialoendoscopic ...
A stricture in a salivary gland duct is essentially a narrowing of the duct. When salivary flow is stimulated the duct may be too narrow to allow it to pass through quickly and act as a bottle neck. The saliva builds up and causes a swelling of the salivary gland in a similar way to a stone causing a local blockage. The swelling usually settles within an hour or so.. Strictures often affect the parotid gland and can be treated by stretching the duct with an endoscope or a balloon. This is usually carried out under a local anaesthetic.. Both treatment of stones and strictures can often be managed by the use of sialdensocopy which is a specialist procedure undertaken regularly by very few surgeons in the UK. ...

The mouth has an important function in our daily life. Eating and speech can be affected by a disease process in the mouth. The oral cavity consists of many structures including bone (maxilla and mandible), mucosa (gum tissue), muscle (tongue and facial muscles), lymph nodes, fat, nerves and blood vessels. Any of these structures can develop a disease process. The disease process may indicate that you have other diseases in the body. For example, fungal infections are common with diabetes. Dry mouth could be caused by salivary gland disease that is related to an autoimmune disease such as Sjogren s syndrome. These conditions including the diagnosis and treatment can be managed by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon.

Objective. The present study examined the reliability and correlation of sialography, salivary gland biopsy, and ultrasonography for Sjögrens syndrome (SS), and evaluated the usefulness of ultrasonography as a diagnostic tool for SS in comparison with sialography and histopathology. Methods. Seventy-three patients who underwent sialography, ultrasonography, and salivary gland biopsy were included in this study. The study evaluated the diagnostic reliability and correlation of each kind of examination with SS. Results. There was a statistically significant difference in the sensitivities of sialography and histopathology, in the specificities of sialography and ultrasonography, and in the accuracies of sialography and both of ultrasonography and histopathology. The correlation coefficient (r) between sialography and ultrasonography was significantly higher than the others and indicated a good correlation. Conclusions. Ultrasonography can be used as a diagnostic tool for SS with its advantage of ...
Simple palpation of the swelling under the neck or under the tongue is often all that is necessary to make the presumptive diagnosis of salivary mucocele. These swellings are soft and feel like fluid within a pocket of tissue. This is unlike the feel of a tumor that might cause a similar swelling in these areas. Tumors usually have a firm, often irregular, feel to them and may be painful to touch.. The definitive diagnosis is made by removal of a sample of the fluid from the swelling and examining it under the microscope. The fluid from a mucocele is usually clear or slightly yellow and thick like mucus. There are usually few cells seen in the sample. Special stains are used to determine if the fluid is saliva. It is important to make sure that the problem is not a pocket of infection (abscess) that might require different treatment.. No other tests are usually necessary to make the diagnosis. ...

Figure 7. Marsupialization of Sublingual Salivary Mucocele. Photo courtesy of Fossum: Small Animal Surgery 3rd edition,br /,Copyright © 2007 by Mosby, Inc., an affiliate of Elsevier Inc.. Pharyngeal sialoceles can be treated with marsupialization. However, it is recommended that pharyngeal sialoceles be treated with resection due to the serious risks associated with upper airway obstruction and inability to swallow.. Zygomatic Sialadenectomy: Zygomatic sialoceles can be effectively treated with removal of the zygomatic salivary gland. The skin over the zygomatic arch is incised. The zygomatic arch is partially removed to expose the gland. The gland is carefully removed with blunt dissection. The zygomatic arch is then replaced using suture and holes drilled into the bone. The overlying subcutaneous tissues and skin is closed. Potential Complications. The potential for nerve damage and hemorrhage (bleeding) during surgery does exist, however, postoperative complications are uncommon when an ...
If a drain was left in the surgical site, your pet will experience several days of drainage. If the wound is bandaged, it will be necessary to change the bandage frequently. If the wound is not bandaged, it is helpful to apply warm compresses with a damp towel. This will help clean the skin in the area of the surgery and will help encourage drainage of fluid from the area.. Prognosis is excellent for a normal life after drainage of a mucocele and adequate removal of the affected salivary glands. Dogs do not suffer from a dry mouth following removal of the mandibular and sublingual glands, even if performed on both sides.. Postoperative complications are uncommon if the procedure is performed by an adequately trained surgeon. Occasionally a fluid pocket (seroma) may develop in the area where the mucocele was. This can either be drained or may be allowed to resolve by itself. Infections are possible but uncommon. If inadequate glandular tissue is removed, it is possible that the mucocele will ...
Normal function of the salivary glands is critical for the maintenance of oral health. Radiation treatment of patients with head and neck cancers, as well as autoimmune diseases such as Sjögrens syndrome cause cellular damage in the salivary glands that is usually severe, irreversible, and impairs normal function. The long-range goal of this laboratory is to establish therapeutic strategies for repair or regeneration of the salivary glands. Basic research projects in our laboratory include the identification and characterization of progenitor cells involved in salivary gland development and regeneration, and the factors required for differentiation of secretory cells. Applied projects address strategies for protection of the salivary glands from radiation-induced damage, and for promoting regeneration of damaged glands. ...

The 6 tests take 10 minutes to complete per patient. According to GC America, these tests are simple, demonstrate salivary dysfunction, help identify factors affecting salivary dysfunction, and assist in the diagnosis of xerostomia. Salivary testing and data collection will occur on 8 independent visits over the course of hyperbaric oxygen treatment and during follow-up. Stimulated saliva samples will be used to measure proteins that are involved in salivary gland revascularization and repair. Saliva samples will be stored at ...
Our group of primary SS patients showed a 19% prevalence of anti-HCV antibodies by third generation ELISA while only 10% of the patients had HCV viraemia. Several studies have considered this question and detected prevalences ranging from 0-75%.4 5Discrepancies among the studies could be caused by: (1) different clinical criteria for the diagnosis of SS, (2) analysis of anti-HCV antibodies in serum, which can lead to false positive results because of hyperglobulinaemia or gammaglobulin treatment as noted by others4 and, (3) differences in the incidence of HCV among different populations.. It is of interest to note the presence of HCV infection exclusively in primary SS patients. This result could be attributed (1) to a pathogenic role of HCV in primary SS, as has been previously suggested with other viral agents,2 or (2) to the presence of a sicca syndrome similar to primary SS leading to the misclassification of asymptomatic HCV infected patients as primary SS.5 Morphological examination of the ...

In a previous study on Shiba dogs with CE, the median age was 4.9 years [6], which was almost comparable to the ages reported in other retrospective studies of dogs with IBD and CE [10-12]. Similarly, in our study, the median age of the Ls group was 5 years (mean 5.2). However, in the Ss group, the median age was 7.5 years (mean 7.6), and in all Shiba dogs, the median age was 7 years. Additionally, a negative correlation was observed between survival time and age in the analysis of all dogs. In a previous study, dogs requiring steroid therapy were middle-aged and older (mean: 6.5 years) [10]. Older Shiba dogs with CE may have different pathological mechanisms and poor responsiveness to steroid therapy compared with those of younger dogs. Thus, aging Shiba dogs with CE require attention because they may have a shorter survival time. Furthermore, it is predicted that dogs aged ,7 years have a higher risk of poor outcome.. There were no previous reports assessing the CIBDAI in Shiba dogs with CE; ...

Medications treat adrenal gland disorders by replacing the cortisol and other hormones normally produced by the adrenal glands with synthetic hormones
Disruptions in the levels of thyroid gland hormones lead to the development of thyroid gland disorders. Read more about these disorders here.
Adrenal gland disorders arise when the adrenal glands do not work properly. Adrenals may produce too much hormones or too little hormones.
As an old proverb would have it, good things often come in small packages, and this is certainly true where the feline thyroid gland is concerned. Consisting of two fleshy, elongated little lobes, this tiny gland -- positioned in the neck along the upper part of a cat s trachea -- is normally only an inch or so in length. Despite its small size, however, the thyroid gland must perform a king-sized task: the regulation of a cat s overall metabolism, the rate at which the animal s bodily processes are carried out.
Corticosteroids are not strong medicines and are commonly used very effectively in treating many disorders in feline medicine, ranging from minor to life-threatening problems.. Most of the time, relatively high doses are used initially to achieve an effect, then tapered to the lowest dose and frequency needed to keep clinical signs at bay. Tapering allows the body to adapt to having the steroids removed from the body. Sometimes steroids can be stopped entirely at the end of the taper and other times are they are required long term. Some are started up as needed on a pulse or temporary basis when a disease flares up. Fortunately, cats are extremely resistant to the side effects of steroids.. The annoying side effects that dogs may experience rarely if ever occur in cats unless a profound overdose of steroids are prescribed. The common side effects in dogs are increased hunger, thirst and urination, panting, pot-bellied appearance, lethargy, and thinning of the skin.. Adverse effects of ...

In recent years, an increase in the number of CT and MRI scans has been recorded for first-line diagnosis in patients with tumor-like lesions of the salivary glands at the outpatient care of an ENT-department (university hospital). 30.7% of the patients with tumor-like lesions in salivary glands underwent an imaging procedure - MRI or CT - prior to US and in about 11.0% of the patients CT scans lack standards like intravenous contrast or a slice thickness of 5 mm or less. Besides data presentation, the present study has been performed to highlight several issues explaining this phenomenon. Especially, one issue addresses the key question, whether MRI, CT and US devices of the newer generation were more valid to deduct the correct diagnosis with special focus on the nature of the tumor lesion (benign/malignant).. According to our study population, the percentage of CT and MRI scans with standard quality for first-line diagnosis in patients with tumor-like lesions of the salivary glands ranged ...
