NECROTIZING SIALOMETAPLASIA : CLINICAL FEATURES, HISTOPATHOLOGY & TREATMENT

Author: Sanketh DS, MDS

INTRODUCTION & ETIOLOGY

Necrotizing sialometaplasia (NS) is a non-neoplastic, inflammatory process predominantly involving the minor salivary glands. It is a rare lesion classically occurring in the minor salivary glands of the hard palate. One has to be cautious when diagnosing the lesion since it may mimic malignant diseases like oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) and mucoepidermoid carcinoma both clinically and histologically. NS usually does not require treatment since it is self-healing.
