''A Giant Sialolith with Perforation of the Floor of Mouth.''

Salivary gland calculus ( Sialolith) is the most common disease of the salivary glands. The majority of sialoliths occur in the submandibular gland or its duct and are a common cause of acute and chronic infections. We report a case of a male patient who had intraductal giant sialolith in the proximal aspect of the submandibular duct impacted at the posterior curve of the duct with perforation of the floor of mouth. The patient was treated successfully with excision of submandibular salivary gland and intraoral removal of the calculus.
