Medications stimulating the exocrine glands
are administered when the salivary glands are only partially impaired .
(1,3,4) The recurring nature of this disease, combined with the diversity of possible sites of involvement, can mean multiple resections and potential loss of exocrine gland

Also called Sjogren's syndrome, this is a chronic, inflammatory, autoimmune disease characterised by lymphocytic infiltration of the exocrine glands

The ectoderm first differentiates the brain and nervous system tissue, then forms the endoderm, which produces the internal mucous membranes and a number of endocrine glands (such as the thyroid and the thymus) and exocrine glands
(such as the pancreas).
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a disorder of the exocrine glands

embedded in the subepithelial connective tissue of the ventro-lateral peristomium under the fold of the collar in Ficopomatus enigmaticus (Fauvel, 1923) (as Mercierella).
In the case of exocrine glands
, cells secrete their products into ducts which carry secretions to a free surface (either internal or external).
