This review of radioiodine sialadenitis covers molecular mechanisms, demographics, and analysis of quality of life. Animal and human research addressing salivary gland damage from I131 therapy is reported, and supplemented with relevant studies addressing the effect of external beam therapy. An illustrative case example identifies abnormalities in the histopathology associated with radioiodine sialadenitis. Approaches to preventing and treating radioiodine sialadenitis are discussed.
