Abstract

Sialolithiasis is a major cause of salivary gland dysfunction. The majority of sialolithiasis or salivary stones are found in the submandibular glands or in its duct. As such, the sublingual gland is a very rare site for stone formation. We described a 30-year-old woman with multiple sialoliths in the sublingual gland. These sialoliths were removed by transoral sublingual sialadenectomy. A total of 11 calculi were found.
