Sialolithiasis in an infant is rare.
We have recently experienced a case of sialolithiasis in a three year old boy. The case had no subjective symptons and was chanced upon by his mother. We removed two sialolithiasis in the duct of submandibular gland under local anesthesia and nitrous oxide inhalation sedation. The prognosis is fairly good after surgical treatment and there is no reccurrence after one and half years.
In a review of literature of Japan, this was one of the youngest cases which we were able to find.
