Background: Submandibular gland is the second largest salivary gland in human body. There are neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases affecting the gland, while sialolithiasis is the most common non-neoplastic disease, pleomorphic adenoma is the most common neoplastic disease of the gland. The most common malignant tumor is adenoid cystic carcinoma.

Material and method: Patients who underwent submandibular gland operation at Cerrahpasa Medical School between 2002 and 2012 were retrospectively analyzed.

Results: Of the patients, 40 were male and 50 were female. Neoplastic diseases were seen in 42 patients and non-neoplastic diseases were seen in 48. The most common neoplastic benign tumor was pleomorphic adenoma, and the most common malignant tumor was mucoepidermoid carcinoma. The most common non-neoplastic disease was sialolithiasis followed by sialadenitis.

Conclusion: While data were consistent with the literature in general, mucoepidermoid carcinoma was found to be the most common malignant tumor of submandibular gland, which was different from the literature.
