10歳以下の小児唾石症3例 Submandibular Salivary Calculus of Three Children under 10 years old
Sialolithiasis is rare in children. In this paper, 3 pediatric cases (8, 9 and 10 years-old, respectively) of sialolithiasis observed in the submandibular gland are reported. In each case, a single calculus of less than 5mm in diameter was removed through an intraoral incision. Sialolithiasis in children is easily diagnosed because it is usually found in the duct, even though X-ray examination fails to indicate it.
