Özet

An increase in the popularity of botulinum toxin for treatment of salivary gland disorders has been observed in recent years. Hyperhidrosis is characterized by excessive sweat production, beyond the required quantity to return increased body temperature to normal. Sialorrhoea is a common symptom in many neurodegenerative disorders. Hyperhidrosis and sialorrhea can cause both physical and psychosocial disability. Many reports on the use of botulinum toxin in hypersecretory disorders have shown favourable results with minimal side effects. (Archives of Neuropsychiatry 2010; 47 Supplement: 48-51)
