Abstract

Purpose: This study aimed to determine the role that ultrasound might playin evaluating parotid swellings in patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1 disease. Patients and Methods: The parotid glands of 13 HIV-positive patients, who were previously diagnosed as seropositive and who were referred because they had unilateral or bilateral parotid grand swellings, were examined sonographically. Results: All patients showed multiple and varied parotid sonolucent areas bilaterally. These patterns reflected the presence of lymphoepithelial cysts, intraparotid lymphadenopathies, and parenchymal lymphoproliferation. Conclusion: Because parotid swellings can represent early clinical evidence of HIV disease, comprehensive gland evaluation is mandatory. Ultrasound offers a simple, rapid imaging technique to ascertain the nature of the glandular pathology. (C) 2001 American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
