Objective: The purpose of this report is the present 19x11 mm sized giant submandibular sialolithiasis which affects mandible.

Case: A 39 year old male patient presented to our clinic with pain in the left mandibular molar region. On the panoramic and occlusal radiographs, salivary gland stones were found in 19x11 mm size. Before the procedure, 2x1 amoxicillin was prescribed for 5 days. On the day of the procedure, an incision was made to the base of the mouth following anesthesia,continued blunt dissection and reached the stone. After the wound was sutured, it was checked whether saliva drainage continued. The patient was discharged after describing the post-operative recommendations. 

Conclusion: Sialolithiasis are rarely seen larger sizes in submandibular regions. Surgical treatment is the mainstay treatment modality at present especially giant sialolits.
