Later, under ultrasonographic guidance, collection of material from bilateral mandibular salivary glands was performed by fine needle aspiration to cytological examination, which indicated the presence of a suppurative sialoadenitis. The patient was submitted to an antibiotic treatment, resulting in a total regression of the cervical volume in two days.
Sonographically, normal salivary glands are presented as slightly hypoechoic and homogeneous structures, however, in cases of acute sialoadenitis, the sonographic findings may be variable depending on the stage of evolution.
Other sonographic changes as hypervascularization of the salivary glands in color Doppler imaging and regional lymphadenopathy, both found in the animal reported, may also be observed in cases of sialoadenitis (6).

Of the 272 pathologists, 218 (80%) gave the reference diagnosis, whereas another 19 gave an alternate nonneoplastic diagnosis (sialoadenitis or granulomas, 18; lymphoepithelial lesions or lymphoepithelial cyst, 1), and 4 gave a diagnosis of "unsatisfactory" for evaluation.
Histologic examination at that time revealed mild interstitial lymphocytic infiltration and mild fibrosis without effacement of glandular tissue, consistent with mild nonspecific sialoadenitis. Several lymph nodes removed at the same time demonstrated no characteristic infiltration of the sinuses by abnormal histiocytic cells.
