However Ellis M in his study on sub mandibular gland removal concludes that gland removal should be considered in cases of sialadenitis, where infection is not found lithotripsy is a much better option.34 The reason for gland resection in our study is the fact that all these patients suffered from multiple episodes of sialadenitis thus intervention was necessary, another reason being the non availability of lithotripsy and sialoendoscopy in our institute.
The diagnostic criteria for SS were reformulated in 2012 by The Sjogren's International Collaborative Clinical Alliance (SICCA) and presence of two of the following articles was stated to be significant: 1) Positive serology [(anti-SSA and/or anti-SSB) or (positive rheumatoid factor and ANA (3) 1:320)], 2) Keratoconjunctivitis sicca, Focal lymphocytic sialadenitis on salivary gland biopsy (8).
