Caption: Salivary duct calculus (centre, white) in the submandibular salivary gland of a 73-year-old woman. A salivary calculus, known as a sialolith, is a hard, stone-like concretion of calcium mineral salts that forms within the ducts. This can block the gland and cause painful inflammation (sialitis), particularly when eating due to increased saliva production.
