Iodine-related submandibular sialadenitis is a rare complication among the causes of sialadenitis. To date, the pathogenesis of iodide mumps has not yet been ascertained. This situation is a late reaction to iodinecontaining contrast agents and can manifest in any patient receiving iodinated contrast agents and repeated exposure. Fortunately, this condition does not require specific treatment and resolution can be expected within one or two weeks. We report an 82-year-old man suffering from iodide-induced sialadenitis following coronary angiography with the use of non-ionic low osmolar contrast media.
