- CONCLUSIONS: Sialendoscopy with flushing/lavage seems to be a good treatment option for patients with sialodochitis lacking sialolithiasis. The results of this study suggest that the type of irrigation used during sialendoscopy seems to be secondary.

Parotid gland lesions in children can be divided into benign or malignant. The age of the patient helps narrow the differential diagnosis, with vascular and congenital lesions being more frequent in the 1st year of life, while solid tumors are more frequent in older children. Inflammatory disease usually has rapid onset in comparison with that of neoplastic or congenital processes, which have more gradual clinical evolution. Currently, multiple imaging techniques are available to study the parotid region, such as US, CT, and MRI. However, it is still a challenge to distinguish nonmalignant lesions from malignant ones. US is the first-line diagnostic approach in children to characterize the morphology and vascularity of these lesions. CT in children may be indicated for evaluation of abscesses or sialolithiasis. MRI is the imaging modality of choice for investigating the nature of the lesion and its extent. In addition to complete and detailed clinical information, knowledge of parotid gland anatomy and characteristic radiologic features of parotid disorders is essential for optimal radiologic evaluation and avoiding unnecessary interventional diagnostic procedures or treatment. This article illustrates a variety of entities (congenital, inflammatory, vascular, neoplastic) that can occur in the parotid gland, highlighting the most frequent radiologic patterns of manifestation and correlating them with clinical, surgical, and pathologic findings. ©RSNA, 2018.

We describe a unique case of a 62-year-old patient with recurrent right submandibular sialadenitis. He initially appeared to have extensive sialolithiasis of the right submandibular duct on computed tomography imaging and examination, but sialendoscopy demonstrated a normal-appearing right submandibular duct. An accessory duct posterior and parallel to the normal duct was identified at the time of sialendoscopy and was found to have extensive sialolithiasis, which required removal by both an endoscopic and intraoral technique. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of sialolithiasis of an accessory submandibular duct identified at the time of sialendoscopy; the other few reported cases in the literature are based primarily on findings from traditional sialography or magnetic resonance sialography. Identification of accessory salivary ducts requires intraoperative consideration of this entity during sialendoscopy. Open approaches to sialolithiasis, however, may be aided by appropriate preoperative imaging.
