Abstract


Chronic sclerosing sialadenitis (CSS) or Küttner’s tumour, a rare benign condition affecting submandibular gland, is now believed to be a localised type of IgG4-related disease. It presents as an asymptomatic swelling. Histopathology is the gold standard for diagnosis. Here we discuss the same in a 55-year-old male presenting as a painless submandibular swelling.
