Sialoliths or phleboliths?

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: Salivary gland obstruction caused by vascular malformation with phleboliths is relatively uncommon and may be masquerading as sialolithiasis. This article presents the case of a patient who suffered from vascular malformation with phleboliths that caused submandibular gland obstruction and was once misdiagnosed as sialolithiasis. STUDY DESIGN: Illustrative case report and review of the literature. METHODS: Our patient was presented with recurrent episodes of right submandibular swelling and pain at mealtime for two years. The radiopacities in the X-ray film were misdiagnosed as multiple sialoliths. The sialendoscopic surgery ruled out the sialoliths, and an impressively expanded vascular network consisting of capillaries was detected all over the ductal lumen. We diagnosed vascular malformation with phleboliths. A search of the MEDLINE database (from 1948 to February 2009) was performed. RESULTS: The patient was treated with sclerotherapy. The clinical outcome was satisfactory during a follow-up of 28 months, with no evidence of recurrence. The results of the extensive literature review showed that vascular malformation with phleboliths that leads to submandibular gland obstruction is rare with a total of three cases reported, including this patient. CONCLUSIONS: Vascular malformation with phleboliths must be included in the differential diagnosis of salivary gland obstruction.

always, and not only on teachers day....... and I dont need to write it down for them to know it.

Dr Atul Ahuja
I have had the opportunity of working in three different institutions during my residency days. Fortunately I got good guidance from several teachers in all of them. The order in which I mention these names is no reflection to whom I am more indebted. I wish to express my gratitude and shall forever be indebted to these people. They are Dr. Sagar and Dr. Kalra at SJH, Dr. Gulati and Dr. Raju at MAMC and Dr.Mathur and Dr. Bais at LHMC. I mention the name of my Guide Dr. Agarwal in the end as I need to thank him specially for being available to me for all manner of guidance and help, for being my guide always.
