Abstract

A case of sialadenitis is presented in a patient with painful swelling of the right mouth floor. The condition was caused by trauma on the right mouth floor during dental treatment, which had happened 15 days before admission. On aspiration, mucous secretion was found and ultrasonography showed obstruction of duct. Histopathological studies and surgical investigation established a definite diagnosis of obstructive sialadenitis caused by ductal laceration. As surgical treatment sialodochoplasty was selected. The case and relevant considerations are discussed.
