Immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related disease is an immune mediated disease causing fibro inflammatory response in the multiple organs of the human body It is a distinct clinical-pathologic entity more commonly seen in the elder populations and biochemically shows increased or elevated Igg4 levels.
Though IgG4RD most commonly seen in the elderly population, it can affect children and adolescents.
We report a case of an 18 year old male presenting with bilateral submandibular and parotid glands involvement in Igg4 related disease diagnosed primarily on ultrasound to stress the importance of this diagnosis by pattern recognition on ultrasound imaging.
In the head and neck, the most common sites of involvement are the salivary glands, lacrimal glands, lymph nodes, and the gland. The pan involvement of bilateral parotid and submandibular glands and also lacrimal glands could be a clue to diagnose this disease process.
