Summary

Sialoliths in sublingual gland is the rarest condition among sialolithiasis in other major salivary glands. Only in 0.4 percent of cases the salivary stone notes in sublingual gland. In our English literature review we count 8 articles which describe sialoliths located within or around the sublingual glands. Nevertheless, in none of those cases a simultaneous sialolithiasis of the submandibular and sublingual gland was noted. Although in one case the authors described a sonogram of sialolith in the sublingual gland, the sonogram of the gland and its ductal system was not presented. Here we present the first ever published clinical and ultrasound report of combined ductal sialolithiasis of sublingual and submandibular glands in a 78-yearold female. Also, Zhang et al`s classification of duct system patterns of the sublingual glands based on 60 cadaveric and 63 clinical cases is analyzed.
