This malady was characterized by swelling of the submaxillary glands and discharge from nose and mouth.
The submaxillary glands may be, but are not always, enlarged.
Meanwhile, the submaxillary glands become swollen and the surrounding connective tissue becomes oedematous.
These were closely attached to the submaxillary salivary glands.
The submaxillary form is usually unilateral and the symptoms are entirely local.
The following day, the tumour reached its maximum of elevation, and sometimes comprised the submaxillary glands of the same side.
In certain exceptional cases the disease affects the submaxillary glands alone.
Adenitis takes place in the submaxillary, retro-maxillary, and sublingual glands of the affected side.
The submaxillary and sublingual salivary glands are also liable to be affected.
The retro-maxillary and submaxillary lymphatic glands become enlarged by inflammatory action.
