Incidentally Detected Agenesis of Left Submandibular Gland in a Case of Papillary Carcinoma Thyroid - A Case Report

Mohammad Haroon MD | Kashif Iqubal MD | Yashmin Nisha DNB

Abstract: Congenital agenesis of unilateral submandibular gland is not a commonly seen disorder. Presentations such as dysphagia, problems in dentition or xerostomia may be seen but the patients may also be symptomless. Till now most of the reported cases are associated with other major salivary gland hypertrophy or with some congenital disorders including lacrimoauriculodentodigital syndrome, facial anomalies and ectodermal dysplasia associated with aplasia or dysplasia of lacrimal or thyroid glands. We report a case of unilateral submandibular gland agenesis associated with metastatic Papillary carcinoma thyroid without any compensatory hypertrophy of other salivary glands substantiated by the findings of MR Imaging.
