Surgical management of submandibular gland sialolithiasis in a children: A case report and literature review

AUTHOR(S): Meryem Lamrani Alaoui, Chaimaa Hajbaoui and Hakima Chhoul
ABSTRACT:Sialolithiasis is a relatively common condition in adults but is rarely found in children (3%–13.8%). The majority of sialoliths are formed (92%) in the Wharton duct.
Clinical manifestations of this special entity differ from those of adult sialolithiasis in some aspects, that is, shorter duration of obstructive symptoms, smaller and distally located calculi.
We report a case of a 9-year-old boy with a sialolith in the left anterior Wharton’s duct. Radiographic and clinical examination confirmed this diagnosis. The calculus was removed transorally under local anaesthesia. Follow-up examinations showed recovery of the function of the affected gland.
