Sialocele typically develops 8-14 days after in- jury.
Diagnosis of sialocele is made by history and clini- cal assessment of patient.
Sialography may be performed, however some authors have claimed that sialography may increase the pressure in sialocele causing rupture and fistula.
Numerous methods described in the literature for sialocele treatment.
Surgical procedures for parotid sialocele can be divided into two groups: First, methods which de- presses secretion of the parotid gland are duct ligation and section of auriculotemporal or Jacobsen's nerve and second are the methods which diverges the secre- tion into the mouth including gland removal, excision and cauterization of fistula, drainage of proximal duct by catheter thus forming a controlled internal fistula or reconstruction of duct by mucosal flap, suture of proximal duct to buccal mucosa, reconstruction of duct with vein graft.
As sublingual sialocele is rarely reported in the literature, in the present case sialocele was associated with difficulty in respiration and was of cosmetic concerns, we opted for gland removal and decompres- sion by pressure dressing.
Post traumatic sialocele should be considered in the differential diagnosis of submental and submandibular swelling after excluding infection and other causes of such swellings.
Transdermal scopolamine use for post rhytidectomtomy sialocele.
Regardless of etiology, the treatment of sialoceles or sialoliths typically involves surgical or medical treatment or both.
Medical treatment of sialoceles has been explored primarily in human patients.
This improvement may have resulted from surgical resection of some of the larger sialoceles and sialoliths, but this seems unlikely because the lesions were so numerous and only 4 were removed.
Botulinum toxin, which causes temporary chemical denervation of the cholinergic nerve fibers, has also been used successfully to manage sialoceles.
