Abstract:

Amyloidosis of salivary glands is a rare disease. The case of a 62-year-old male patient with 20 years of progressive swelling of the floor of the mouth and raising of the tongue that impacted the swallowing, phonation, and tongue movement of the patient is reported in this paper. Clinical examination revealed a large mass in the floor of the mouth. The lip and cheek mucosae had a considerable number of hard, soybean-sized, light-yellow nodules. The surgical removal of the mass under and in front of the tongue was performed. A pathology examination and Congo red staining confirmed the diagnosis of amyloidosis of the submandibular glands and sublingual glands. No recurrence was observed after 5 years of follow-up. The literature on the relevant problems was reviewed.

Key words: Amyloidosis, Salivary gland, Floor of the mouth
