Enlarged Parotid Glads
Mar 3, 2007

Treatment options for known HIV enlarged parotid glads,and results.

Response from Dr. Henry

Treatment of enlarged parotid glands depends on what is the underying condition. For patients with polycystic parotid glands and no other identified pathology low dose radiation can sometimes provide cosmetic benefit (often needs to be repeated after several years). I am not seeing enlarged parotid glands as often as I used to in the pre-HAART era for some unknown reason. KH
