Consequently, we aimed to present the long-term outcomes and sialendoscopic findings in only patients with sialolithiasis and ductal scars in idiopathic chronic recurrent sialadenitis who experienced failure with conservative treatment and were treated with the sialendoscopy approach.
Masaki et al, (21) laid down four-point characteristic clinical features of IgG4-related sialadenitis, which help in differentiating this disease from sclerosing sialadenitis.
We reported here for the first time that iPSC-MSCs prevented SS progression before the onset of sialadenitis in the same way as BM-MSCs.

While some studies have found no trances of such negative-stranded RNA in saliva samples [54], this type of RNA was found in the salivary gland tissue samples of infected patients also suffering from sialadenitis [55].
Labial salivary gland (LSG) biopsy revealed focal lymphocytic sialadenitis (FLS), with a focus score (FS) =1 (per 4 mm2) obtained by four LSGs (3-5 mm).
Also the fact that this is a well circumscribed lesion helps us distinguish it from lymphoepithelial sialadenitis. Lack of mitosis or cellular atypia in the epithelial component distinguishes them from malignant counterparts.
This finding may be associated with both the early/short-term and late/long-term side effects of RIT, including sialadenitis, xerostomia, gastritis, nausea/vomiting, dental caries, taste dysfunction, dry eye, and pulmonary fibrosis.
Parotid swelling can result from a diverse spectrum of pathologies: inflammation or infections [e.g., bacterial, viral (e.g., mumps or HIV sialopathy), or chronic sialadenitis], autoimmune diseases (e.g., Sjogren's disease and chronic recurrent parotitis), granulomatous diseases (e.g., Wegener's granulomatosis and sarcoidosis), Kimura's disease, miscellaneous diseases (e.g., sialadenosis, polycystic disease, radiation sialadenitis, and pneumoparotid), neoplastic diseases (e.g., pleomorphic adenoma, Warthin's tumor, and mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma), and pseudolesions (e.g., hypertrophy of the masseter muscle) (2).
* Infectious/Inflammatory: Parotiditis, parotid abscess, cellulitis, radiation sialadenitis, lymphoepithelial cysts, type 1 and 2 (Figure 13D).
Other common presentations include Riedel's thyroiditis, autoimmune pancreatitis, sclerosing cholangitis, sialadenitis, dacryoadenitis, periaortitis, an eosinophilic rash, and pseudotumor of the lung, lymph nodes, or orbits.
