    Abstract

    Necrotizing sialometaplasia (NS) is a self-limiting, ulcerated, benign process, affecting minor salivary glands most commonly in the palate. The comorbidity of eating disorders with NS is rare. We present a patient with bilateral NS who suffered from frequent episodes of vomiting. Review of the literature revealed a handful of such cases. The possible role of vomiting in the pathogenesis of NS is argued.
