Sialolithiasis is an obstructive salivary disease due to salivary stone formation, also known as "meal time syndrome" because of its association with meal times, usually measuring less than 1 cm. However, occasionally giant sialoliths as large as 3 cm have been reported. Here, we report an interesting case of large intraductal sialolith of submandibular salivary gland in an old patient, with relevant radiological investigations and review of literature.
