Abstract

Sialadenitis is a stone in the salivary system that often presents as acute pain and swelling and can cause significant distress to patients. Here, we present a case of submandibular sialadenitis in a 41-year-old woman who experienced sudden-onset facial and neck pain and swelling. In addition, we discuss the diagnosis and emergency department management.
