The authors studied minor salivary gland morphology of 59 patients with different forms of chronic sialadenitis and Sjogren's syndrome (SS). The presence of pathomorphological changes in the salivary gland was established in chronic sialadenitis as well as in SS.

The authors made a conclusion of the systemic involvement of the salivary glands in chronic sialadenitis.
