The Teaching Point

The term Mikulicz Disease should be reserved for cases that follow a benign course and are of unknown etiology. Mikulicz Syndrome should be used in cases with concomitant disorders. Unilateral or bilateral enlargement of the parotid and lacrimal glands on imaging should prompt radiologists to discuss the possibility of these two disease entities.

Abstract
Mikulicz Syndrome (MS) is a rare chronic condition characterized by the abnormal enlargement of glandular tissue in the head and neck. Patients usually present with enlarged lacrimal and parotid glands. While this can be a benign self-limiting condition, other complex systemic diseases, such as sarcoidosis, may represent other underlying etiologies. We present a case of MS in a patient with a history of Crohn`s disease.
