Symptomatic and asymptomatic salivary duct abnormalities in Darier's disease: a sialographic study.

Author information

  • 1Department of Dental Radiology, Newcastle Dental School, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK.


Symptoms of obstructive sialadentis have been occasionally reported as a feature of Darier's disease. Parotid sialograms of three patients with confirmed Darier's disease and histories suggestive of salivary obstruction revealed dilatation with periodic strictures and indentations affecting the main ducts. Similar parotid sialograms in three Darier's disease patients with no symptoms attributable to their salivary glands revealed seepage of contrast media associated with the secondary and tertiary ducts. These findings suggest that salivary glands may be more commonly involved in Darier's disease than previous reports indicate.
