Abstract
Mikulicz's disease is an autoimmune disorder characterized by asymptomatic chronic swelling of the salivary gland or lacrimal gland. It is also called as a benign lymphoepithelial lesion. The clinical manifestations are usually bilateral and symmetric. The diagnosis is confirmed by only histopathologic finding. Microscopically, the lymphoid infiltration and epimyoepithelial island appear as the solid nests surrounded and infiltrated by lymphoid cells. The treatment is symptomatic, but the patients are at an increased risk for the development of malignant lymphoma. So it need a careful observation.
Key Words: Mikulicz's disease, Benign lymphoepithelial lesion
