In the period of 9 years, 1118 cases were subjected to histopathological examination. Of these 30 cases (2.68%) were salivary gland lesions. Of the 30, 60%was mucous extravasation cyst, 20% salivary gland neoplasm, 16.67% sialadenitis and 3.3% SjogrenęSQĽs syndrome. These lesions showed no statistical significant difference in age, sex and site distribution, due to limited number of cases, except mucous extravasation cyst, which showed statistical significance in relation to sex.
