Sialolithiasis of the minor salivary glands is a rare disease. We report an extremely rare case of multiple sialoliths occurring in the minor salivarly glands of the upper lip and arising bilaterally in the buccal mucosa. A 86-year-old man presented with multiple small nodules arising in the upper lip and occurring bilaterally in the buccal mucosa. He noticed these nodules about 10 years previously. He felt no pain. Multiple small nodules just beneath the normal mucosa were detected on palpation, suggesting multiple calcifications under the oral mucosa. Histopathologically, these lesions were diagnosed as sialolithiasis with chronic inflammation of the minor salivary glands.
