Abstract / Description of output

We present 2 case reports highlighting the essential differences between Mikulicz syndrome and Mukulicz disease. A review of the literature appears to show some confusion over the terminology and we therefore also present an historical account of the evolution of the two terms and review their relative merits and relationship with other disorders. In conclusion, we would not advocate the use of the term Mikulicz syndrome and suggest that Mikulicz disease be replaced by the title 'Benign Lymphoepithelial Lesion'.
