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).
vermicularis may cause appendicitis, intestinal obstruction, intestinal perforation, enterocolitis, hepatic infection, urinary tract infections, epididymitis, sialoadenitis, and salpingitis.

The number of associated conditions recognized has increased immensely and includes ulcerative colitis, Crohn disease, primary sclerosing cholangitis, (56-60) lymphoplasmacytic cholecystitis, (16) primary biliary cirrhosis, (61) Sjogren syndrome, (3,62) chronic sclerosing sialoadenitis resembling Mikulicz disease, (45,63) thyroiditis, (64) the family of tumorlike lesions known as multifocal idiopathic fibrosclerosis, including mediastinal and retroperitoneal fibrosis, Riedel thyroiditis, and inflammatory pseudotumor of the orbit, (65-70) tubulointerstitial nephritis, (71-73) interstitial pneumonia, (74) lymphadenopathy, (75) prostatitis, (76) and inflammatory abdominal aortic aneurysm.
Histologic examination at that time revealed mild interstitial lymphocytic infiltration and mild fibrosis without effacement of glandular tissue, consistent with mild nonspecific sialoadenitis.
