Salivary gland calculi account for the most common disease of the salivary glands. Most of the salivary calculi are small in size. Some calculi that reach several centimeters are reported as megaliths or giant calculi in the literature. They may occur in any of the salivary gland ducts but are most common in Wharton's duct and in the submandibular gland. This report presents clinical and radiographical sign of an unusually large sialolith. A patient came with pain in the floor of mouth. There was a swelling on floor of mouth on the left side. Radiographical examination revealed large irregular radio-opaque mass superimposed on left lateral incisor to molar areas. This case report describes a patient presenting with an unusually large submandibular gland duct sialolith, the subsequent patient management, the etiology, diagnosis, and its treatment.
