Abstract: Sialolithiasis is one of the most common disorders of the salivary glands. A history of pain or/and swelling in the salivary glands, especially during meal suggests this diagnosis. The conservative therapies with palliative therapy can produce satisfactory results for small and accessible stones. When the stone/stones are inaccessible or large in size surgical management should be considered. In this paper, we present ten cases of sialolithiasis in different sites of the submandibular gland and the wharton?duct. The purpose of this paper is to add ten more cases to the literature and review the theories of etiology, clinical features, diagnostic and treatment procedures.
