Sialolithiasis in the sublingual gland

  • Ki Hwan Hong (a1) and Yoon Soo Yang (a1)


Sialolithiasis is a major cause of salivary gland dysfunction. The submandibular gland is the most common site followed by the parotid gland. The sublingual gland and minor glands are very rare sites for stone formation. This paper describes a case of multiple sialoliths arising in the sublingual gland. They presented on the right floor of the mouth. The sublingual gland and sialoliths were completely removed with careful preservation of the lingual nerve and Wharton’s duct. This was an uncommon sialolithiasis of the sublingual gland in a 14-year-old female.
