Sialolithiasis is a relatively common pathology in dental practice that affects mainly the major salivary glands. The submandibular glands are more affected, in young adults, between the third and fourth decades of life. Clinical and sometimes radiographic features determine the diagnosis, leading to appropriate treatment, particularly surgical. The purpose of this article is to report the case of a patient who presented painful symptoms caused by a sialolith located in the submandibular duct, treated by surgical excision. The case has been followed for 14 years. The diagnosis, therapeutic modalities and prognosis were discussed.
