Sialolithiasis is a common disease of the salivary glands and a major cause of salivary gland dysfunction. It commonly affects middle-aged and has male predominance. Submandibular gland or its duct is most commonly affected. The size of salivary calculi may vary from less than 1 mm to a few cm in the largest diameter. Salivary stones that exceed 15 mm in any dimension are classified as giant. Association of sialocutaneous or sialo-oral fistula with salivary stones is considered rare.doi:10.5005/jp-journals-10011-1207 fatcat:m7odqjihhretxo6l5jllembtiy
