Abstract

Sialolithiasis is the most common disease of the major salivary gland. Lithiasis of minor salivary gland, instead, is very rare. Diagnosis is often challenging as frequency, clinical appearance and symptoms are relatively unknown. We report on a case of minor salivary gland lithiasis of the cheek resembling a venous malformation and its management by diode laser.
