Oral Maxillofac Surg Clin North Am. 2009 Aug;21(3):339-43. doi: 10.1016/j.coms.2009.04.002.


The authors review the clinical presentation, diagnostic evaluation, and treatment modalities for salivary gland enlargement in an HIV-infected population. Because this can occasionally be the presenting clinical symptom of HIV infection, it is important for the oral/maxillofacial surgeon to diagnose and manage HIV salivary gland enlargement.
