Jornal Brasileiro de Patologia e Medicina Laboratorial 10/2007; 43(5):381-384. DOI: 10.1590/S1676-24442007000500012

ABSTRACT Chronic sclerosing sialadenitis (Kuttner tumour) is an unusual chronic inflammatory process of the salivary gland that affects principally the submandibular gland. The aim of this work is to report a case of chronic sclerosing sialadenits associated with sialolithiasis. Kuttner tumour is an uncommon entity that clinically may not be distinguished from neoplasia and though it can be resolved by surgical excision of the lesion, it causes important upset for the patient, as intense pain, dysphonia and dysphagia.
