Salivary calculi are a common cause of salivary gland disorder and may occur in any of the salivary glands and at almost any age. The stones may be small and intraductal or may lie within the gland substance. They cause symptoms by obstructing salivary flow. Diagnosis is usually straightforward and treatment is aimed at stone removal. Our article presents a review on submandibular sialoliths covering the aetiology, diagnosis and various treatment modalities available for management of salivary gland calculi depending on their site and size, alongwith a case report of an intraductal stone removed intraorally.
