Salivary gland enlargement following iodine-containing contrast media (ICCM), also known as iodide mumps (IM), is a rare condition characterized by swelling of submandibular glands with complete restitutio ad integrum. It manifests itself without pain, fever, dyspnea, rapid heart rate or low blood pressure. The pathogenesis is unknown, it may be an idiosyncratic reaction or toxic due to deposition of iodide in the salivary glands. IM is a condition more frequent in end stage renal disease because of iodine excretion by kidneys but it can also occurs in patients without end stage renal disease. Here, we describe a 71-year-old patient with liver cirrhosis due to hepatitis B virus with normal renal function that after administration of ICCM developed IM.
