Abstract

Human immunodeficiency virus-associated salivary gland disease (HIV-SGD) is defined as the presence of xerostomia and/or swelling of the major salivary glands. It is common among children but uncommon among adults. HIV-SGD includes lymphoepithelial lesions and cysts involving the salivary gland tissue and/or intraglandular lymph nodes, and Sjögren's syndrome-like conditions, diffuse interstitial lymphocytosis syndrome, and other reported lesions of the major salivary glands. This article reviews the terminology, prevalence, symptoms, clinical features, diagnostic procedures, histopathology, serology, natural history, treatment, and pathogenesis of HIV-SGD.
