Subacute necrotizing Sialadenitis (SANS) is a recently described non-specific inflammatory condition of unknown etiology affecting oral minor salivary glands. The lesion is most often characterized by a self-limiting localized palatal swelling, accompanied by an abrupt onset of pain. Although SANS has been questioned as an entity by some investigators who prefer to include it within the spectrum of necrotizing sialometaplasia, there are justifications to consider SANS to be separate entity based on the clinical and histopathological parameters. A case of subacute necrotizing sialadenitis in a young man is discussed.
