Bottom Line: The aim of this study was to clarify the clinical and pathological associations between KT and IgG4-DS.There were no significant differences in the clinical findings, including the mean age, sex and disease duration, between the two groups.These results suggest an association between the pathogeneses of KT-S (-) and IgG4-DS, but not KT-S (+).

fig01: Classification tree performance of patients with chronic sialoadenitis (CS). KT-S (+), Küttner tumour (KT) with sialolith; KT-S (−), KT without sialolith; *IgG4-positive plasma cells/IgG-positive plasma cells >0.4

Mentions: This study included 54 patients (22 men and 32 women; mean age, 51.3 ± 28.3 years) pathologically diagnosed with KT or CS based on specimens obtained from extirpating SMGs. All patients were referred to the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Kyushu University Hospital, Fukuoka, Japan, from 2003 to 2013. As shown in Figure1, these patients were divided into two groups according to the presence or absence of sialolith: with sialolith [KT-S (+)] (n = 46; 20 men and 26 women; mean age, 49.8 ± 20.4 years) and without sialolith [KT-S (−)] (n = 8; two men and six women; mean age, 61.3 ± 4.6 years). The study design was approved by the Ethics Committee of Kyushu University, Japan, and all participants provided written informed consent (IRB serial number: 25-287).
