AbstractDrooling is a physiological process in infants. When it persists beyond the age of 4 years, it becomes a clinical symptom. Drooling is a common problem among children of all ages with a neurological deficit. It causes significant decrease in the quality of life of the children and their families. Parents often accept the disability because they are not aware that treatment is available. Doctors should recognise the problem during a consultation and discuss the available management options. Patients should be reffered to a drooling clinic that adopts a multi-disciplinary approach. Management of drooling has been evolving over the last thirty years. Surgery has become a safe and effective management option.
