Norma Abd Jalil, Han Fong Siew, Jeremy Lee Ju Kuan, Khairulzaman Adnan: Giant Sialolith in the Hilum of Right Submandibular Duct: A Case Report. Mal. J. Oral Maxillofac. Surg. 2012; 10: 21–23.

Abstract: Sialolithiasis is a common disease of the salivary glands associated with the formation of stones within the duct or gland structure. A 40 year old woman with an unusual sized sialolith in the hilum of the right submandibular duct is described. She presented with relatively mild symptoms despite the size of the sialolith. Excision of the gland and stone were performed via a cervical approach under general anaesthesia. A review of previously reported surgical approaches and their complications was done.
