Stensen duct dilation: Case series of minimally invasive treatment

Abstract : Stensen's duct dilation is a rare condition characterized by a global or partial idiopathic dilation of the Stensen duct. Affected individuals usually show either aesthetically compromised features, such as a tubular-shaped swelling in the cheek, or with mildly painful inflammatory episodes. Three women between ages 61 and 67years were diagnosed with Stensen duct dilation after sialo-magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). They were treated with botulinum toxin A (BTX-A). Our preliminary results suggest that BTX-A was efficient as a suspensive treatment. BTX-A should remain a first-line treatment of the early silent symptoms of Stensenduct dilation, such as swelling and aesthetic issues. The use of BTX-A avoids more serious procedures and further complications. Copyright © 2019 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
