  The long standing inflammation of salivary gland i.e. chronic sialadenitis is mostly due to sialolithiasis i.e. calculi within the duct system. The confirmation of diagnosis is by bimanual palpation, ultrasound and computerized tomography (CT). CT is helpful in assessing the size, site and number of calculi. Conventional treatment sialodochotomy i.e. stone removal by intraoral incision over salivary duct is still useful for palpable stones. For stones located proximally in the gland sialadenectomy i.e. gland excision was advocated.
