Background: Many conditions affect the salivary glands. Acute sialadenitis is infectious or inflammatory disorders of the salivary glands. The exact frequency of submandibular sialadenitis is unclear. The acute conditions more typically involve the parotid and submandibular glands. Submandibular gland and its duct calculi are known entities, but their typical presentation is rare. Material and methods: During an acute inflammatory process, there is swelling of the affected gland, overlying pain, gland tenderness, fever, and on occasion, difficulty in opening the mouth. Results and Conclusion: Here, we present a case of 23-year-old male with unilateral left submandibular gland and Wharton's duct calculi expelling calculus and pus and impacted calculus in the proximal duct and gland from its opening under surface of the tongue and left submandibular sialoadenectomy done through the submandibular external approach.
