Hypertrophic sialosis: general review and report on 13 cases (author's transl)

The authors describe 13 cases of hypertrophic sialosis and discuss possible mechanisms which could explain their appearance. In spite of different etiologies there is uniformity in the reactions produced. The authors therefore compared the clinical findings with those reported from animal experiments in which such lesions were artificially produced. Whether the processes of cellular hyperplasia and hypertrophy observed are related to an autonomic nervous system disorder, is open to question.
