Sialolithiasis or salivary gland duct calculus or salivary stones are the most common pathologies of the salivary gland. Sialolithiasis accounts for more than 50% of the major salivary gland diseases. Sialoliths are deposits obstructing the ducts of major or minor salivary glands or its parenchyma. Salivary stones larger than 15 mm are classified as giant sialoliths. Giant sialoliths measuring 35 mm or more are extremely rare, with approximately 18 cases published in literature all reported in male patients. The aim of this article is to present a case of a giant sialolith occurring in an old female patient and to communicate the results of a literature search on giant sialoliths.
