The author has recently experienced an interesting case of salivary stone of the right submaxillary gland. A 54 year old man visited the department of otolaryngology, W.M.B.H. on 4 March 1983 with complaints of a walnut sized, semisolid mass in the right submaxillary region and pain at mealtimes for 1 year. Plain A-P and right lateral mandibular X-ray views revealed a small radiopaque density in the submaxillary region. We attempted a transoral approach but were unable to remove the stone. On sialographic study, the stone was located in the hilum of the right submaxillary gland. Through an external approach, extirpation of the gland with stone removal was done. The stone was 1×0.4×0.4cm in size 0.4gm in the weight, and the gland was 3×2.3×2cm in the size. The biopsy of the gland revealed chronic sialoadenitis.
