About this book


Both the major and minor salivary glands can be the site of a wide variety of diseases and functional disturbances. This monograph covers both the common lesions and conditions of the salivary glands as well as the rare ones. Much attention is given to the problematical complaint of dry mouth and the even more cumbersome diagnostic aspects of Sjögren's syndrome. The emphasis is on the clinical aspects and the management of the various disorders. The vast experience of the authors is reflected in a clear and concise style. The illustrations are well chosen and updated references are provided, where appropriate. Physicians working in the field of internal medicine will find this a very useful text for the every day practice; this also applies to oral and maxillofacial surgeons, otorhinolaryngologists, dentists, and medical specialists who have a special interest in salivary gland diseases.
