  34. 34. Sjogren’s Syndrome: Pathophysiology <ul><li>Insult may start with a bacterial or viral infection. The peptides and antigens associated with the bacterial or viral infection along with autoantigens (self being recognized as foreign) are associated with HLA II complex that gets expressed on CD4+ T Cells. Once the HLA is expressed, there is release of cytokines and further T Cell activation </li></ul><ul><li>After the initial attack of the CD4+ T Cells, B cells enter the gland and make autoantibodies, including, in many cases Anti-SS-A (Ro) and Anti-SS-B (La) (only Sjogren’s Syndrome) and in some cases Rheumatoid Factor. Via autoimmunity, and antigens being expressed to CD4+ T cells, the acini of the gland are destroyed </li></ul>
  35. 35. Pathophysiology: Continued <ul><li>Multifactorial disease </li></ul><ul><li>SS is sometimes called autoimmune epithelitis in which there is apoptosis of epithelial cells leading to degradation products and leading to antinuclear autoantigens to the immune system </li></ul><ul><li>Molecules within the TNF family play a big role in the polyclonal activation of B Cells. This, in turn leads to autoantibodies </li></ul><ul><li>There is known inhibition of healthy glands and/or the muscarinic receptors (via antibodies) and also abnormal function of aquaporins leading to poor function of remaining healthy glandular structure </li></ul><ul><li>There is prolonged/permanent activation of autoreactive B cells favoring oncogenic activity and possible development of B Lymphoma </li></ul>
  36. 36. Parotitis/Sjogren’s: Histology <ul><li>Acute Parotitis: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>See inflammatory infiltrate (neutrophils) around the ductal system and acini </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Destruction of epithelial tissues </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Chronic Parotitis: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Inflammatory infiltrate in the parenchyma of the gland (Plasma Cells and Lymphocytes) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The basic features are massive lymphoid infiltration with atrophy of the acini, proliferation of the cells of the small ducts that leads to narrowing of the lumen, and finally, obliteration of the gland </li></ul>

  41. 41. <ul><li>There is no gold standard for the diagnosis of Sjogren’s Syndrome </li></ul><ul><li>In the past, biopsy and salivary flow rates were used </li></ul><ul><li>Minor Salivary Gland biopsy is the most accurate diagnosis means but is not used as a criteria for the diagnosis of Sjogren’s, rather it is helps confirm the diagnosis when there is a blood test confirming presence of Anti-SSA or Anti-SS-B </li></ul><ul><li>Study wants to know if there is a less invasive way to have an accurate diagnosis of Sjogren’s Syndrome </li></ul>Why Do the Study?
  42. 42. Purpose of the Study <ul><li>The present study aimed at assessing the role of minor salivary gland biopsy and sialometry, either isolated or associated, as methods used to classify Sjögren's Syndrome based on the criteria defined by the European Community Study Group on Diagnostic Criteria for Sjögren's Syndrome </li></ul>
  43. 43. Materials and Methods: Subjects <ul><ul><li>72 patients coming to the Department of Otorhinolaryngology, in Sao Paulo Brazil from 1997 to 2003 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Based on a criterion showed, they were submitted into the investigation for diagnosis </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Patients split into 2 groups  those with the diagnosis of Sjogren’s already, and those without the diagnosis of Sjogren’s </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>26 pts with Sjogren’s and 46 pts not yet dx with Sjogren’s </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Those with Sjogren’s were broken up into Primary or Secondary Sjogren’s </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To classify patients with primary Sjögren's Syndrome we required the presence of 4 out of 6 items and item 4 (histopathology) or 6 (auto-antibodies) had necessarily to be present. As to classification of patients with secondary Sjögren's Syndrome, it required the presence of item 1 or item 2 plus 2 other items numbered 3, 4 and 5 </li></ul></ul>
  44. 44. Materials and Methods: Methods: <ul><li>Non-stimulated sialometry: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Used 2 pre-weighed cotton balls </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Subjects swallowed all saliva, then cotton balls put on the floor of the mouth for 2 minutes, then weighed again </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Anything 0.1ml/minute considered abnormal </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Minor Salivary Gland Biopsy: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Horizontal incision parallel to the vermillion border of the lower lip </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Took about 4-6 minor salivary glands </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Histopathological findings were graded as follows: normal gland; mild inflammatory process; moderate inflammatory process; severe inflammatory process, and presence of inflammatory foci </li></ul></ul>
  45. 45. A Review… <ul><li>sensitivity = probability of a positive test among patients with disease </li></ul><ul><li>specificity = probability of a negative test among patients without disease </li></ul><ul><li>positive predictive value = the proportion of patients with positive test results who are correctly diagnosed. It is considered the physician's gold standard, as it reflects the probability that a positive test reflects the underlying condition being tested for </li></ul><ul><li>negative predictive value = the proportion of patients with negative test results who are correctly diagnosed </li></ul>
  46. 46. Results: <ul><li>As to the number of inflammatory foci found on biopsy: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Those with Primary Sjogren’s had more than those with Secondary Sjogren’s who had more than those with no diagnosis of Sjogren’s </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Current Article: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Biopsy  Sensitivity of 72%, Specificity of 84% </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Positive Predictive Value of 75% </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Negative Predictive Value of 82% </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Meaning  84% of the time, those with SS will have a positive biopsy </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Meaning  72% of the time, those without SS will have a negative biopsy </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Meaning  75% of the time, those with a positive biopsy will have SS dx correctly </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Meaning  82% of the time, those with a negative biopsy will not have SS </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sialometry  Sensitivity of 62%, Specificity of 52% </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Negative Predictive Value of 71% </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Biopsy Accuracy  79% </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Both Biopsy + and Sialometry +  Specificity of 95%, PPV of 86% </li></ul></ul>
  47. 47. Conclusion <ul><li>Sialometry  higher sensitivity and specificity in Primary vs Secondary group </li></ul><ul><ul><li>There is higher likelihood of the subject not having Sjögren's Syndrome when sialometry is negative </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Biopsy  higher sensitivity and specificity in Primary vs Secondary group </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A subject would have 75% likelihood of having Sjögren's syndrome when biopsy was positive and 81.6% likelihood of not having Sjögren's syndrome when biopsy was negative </li></ul></ul>

  51. 51. Conclusion <ul><li>Recurrent Suppurative Parotitis is a common first manifestation in children and adolescents </li></ul><ul><li>Recurrent Parotitis being the first manifestation is rare, but can happen </li></ul><ul><li>Treatment for Recurrent Parotitis: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Because of stasis of saliva within the gland, there is usually bacterial infection, thus antibiotics are common  some literature promotes Antibiotic Prophylaxis to prevent this as some patients can feel prodromal symptoms before inflammation/infection of the gland </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Point of the article: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Consider Sjogren’s Syndrome within the differential as the underlying cause of Recurrent Parotitis, even in adults </li></ul></ul>
