PDF  


We report a rare case of lithiasis of the minor salivary glands (LMSG) of the upper lip, with a very atypical clinical presentation, firstly as a left hemifacial cellulitis and later, after antibiotic therapy, as a solid, firm and hard intramural nodule of the retrocommissural side of the upper lip; the needs of a wide spectrum of clinical differential diagnosis with calcified angiomas, salivary tumors, soft tissue tumors, phlogistic and neoplastic pathology of the local lymphnode, foreign body lesions, is underlined. The histological aspects of the lesion are described.
