The Review on Diagnosis and Management of Necrotizing Sialometaplasia
Keywords:Necrotizing Sialometaplasia, inflammation, Ischemia , salivary gland
Necrotizing sialometaplasia (NS) is defined as a benign, self-limiting inflammatory condition of tissues related to salivary gland. It accounts for less than 1percent of total of biopsied oral lesions. Necrotizing sialometaplasia (NS) has a very good prognosis. Ischemia owing to trauma is the most common cause of necrotizing sialometaplasia, which is a perfectly benign lesion. With or without biopsy, the lesions heal on their own. The goal of a biopsy is to rule out cancer as the cause of their troubling clinical symptoms. The majority of cases of necrotizing sialometaplasia are thought to be caused by vascular ischemia. Management of Necrotizing sialometaplasia doesn’t necessates surgery or medications as the disease is self-healed one, surgery is only applied when cellular masses are massive. This article aims to overview epidemiology, diagnosis and management of necrotizing sialometaplasia.
