Answer

See the list below:

  • Patients requiring inpatient management should be monitored on a daily basis and preferably twice daily.

  • In order to ascertain the progression or improvement of acute sialadenitis, serial CT scanning may be warranted.

  • Patients with sialolithiasis should be treated conservatively during the acute exacerbation stage and should be monitored after discharge for definitive surgical intervention.
