Sialadenitis is a salivary gland infection resulting from an obstruction of the salivary gland. The obstruction causes the saliva flow to be reduced and the bacterial overgrowth within the salivary gland causes sialadenitis.

Sialolithiasis (also termed salivary calculi, or salivary stones), is a condition where a calcified mass or sialolith forms within a salivary gland, usually in the duct of the submandibular gland (also termed "Wharton's duct"). Less commonly the parotid gland or rarely the sublingual gland or a minor salivary gland may develop salivary stones. The usual symptoms are pain and swelling of the affected salivary gland, both of which get worse when salivary flow is stimulated, e.g. with the sight, thought, smell or taste of food, or with hunger or chewing. This is often termed "mealtime syndrome".Inflammation or infection of the gland may develop as a result. Sialolithiasis may also develop because of the presence of existing chronic infection of the glands, dehydration (e.g. use of phenothiazines), Sjögren's syndrome and/or increased local levels of calcium, but in many instances the cause is idiopathic (unknown). The condition is usually managed by removing the stone, and several different techniques are available. Rarely, removal of the submandibular gland may become necessary in cases of recurrent stone formation. Sialolithiasis is common, accounting for about 50% of all disease occurring in the major salivary glands and causing symptoms in about 0.45% of the general population. Persons aged 30–60 and males are more likely to develop sialolithiasis. Source: Wikipedia El cálculo de la glándula salival (sialolitiasis) es una concreción, principalmente de sales minerales de calcio (calculus) que se forma en los conductos de las glándulas salivales. Pueden llegar a producir obstrucciones e inflamaciones (sialitis) que pueden causar dolor al comer, cuando se incrementa la producción de saliva, e infecciones de la glándula. La mayoría de este tipo de cálculo se forma en la glándula submandibular. Music: Different Heaven & EH!DE - My Heart [NCS Release]

There are three paired major salivary glands. One is the parotid glands in front of the ear. The submandibular gland s below the jaw, the sublingual gland is below the tongue. All these glands produce saliva, which pours into the oral cavity, mixes with the food, enables the food to be masticated and digested. These glands secrete the saliva into the mouth through ducts called as salivary ducts. Now one of the commonest causes for the salivary blocks are stones in the salivary ducts. When the exit gets blocked, the salivary secretions back up into the gland and causes salivary gland swelling This typically happens when the patient eats an gives rise to severe pain in the area of the obstructed or the blocked salivary gland These stones are formed de novo and is because of build-up of this crystallised saliva. These ducts when they get blocked, give rise to this salivary secretion, subsequently get infected and give rise to sialadenitis or infection of the salivary glands. These are surgical conditions which needs surgical treatment to relieve them of the blocks. As far as the malignancy is concerned, apart from a good clinical examination , which may throw some suspicion about the swelling in the region of the salivary glands, we further proceed with what we call as a CT scan or an MRI evaluation of the head and neck region and whenever required, an image guided fine needle aspiration cytology, that is tissue for examination under microscope, which will tell us whether it is malignant or not.
patient education video about salivary gland infections including Parotitis. In this video, Dr. Carlo Oller talks about the diagnosis, treatment, complications, follow up of the disease.
This video show Pus discharge from left parotid duct opening in a case of Acute Suppurative Parotitis in old man. Patient presented with left parotid gland swelling & pain since last 5 days . He also complain of fever & weakness . On examination , Left parotid duct opening show Pus discharge by gentle pressure over the gland . He is a known case of diabetes , hypertension & allergy .He also have dental caries & poor oral hygiene . Patient was admitted & got relief with IV antibiotic , IV fluid , anti-inflammatory , mouth gargles & Vitamin C . Diabetes , hypertension & allergy kept under control . Acute Suppurative Parotitis : It is most commonly seen in the elderly, debilitated and dehydrated patients. Dry mouth due to any reason is a predisposing factor. Usual route of infection is from the mouth through the parotid gland duct opening . Treatment : It consists of IV antibiotics , adequate hydration, measures to increase salivary flow and attention to oral hygiene. If fever does not subside and there is progression of disease , surgical Incision & drainage should be done. Thanks .... Good Day ....
This is a video of me removing a salivary gland stone, or a sialolith, from my submandibular salivary gland (right under your tongue). It's not like I decided to do this in the beginning, it just kind of happened that way. I went to an Urgent Care clinic in the morning since the pain was so bad and before I could get into and EENT doctor in the afternoon the pressure was causing things to happen on their own without much help. As I watched it unfold I thought, "might as well get some cool video and just finish what's going to happen anyways."
