Abstract This study examines 55 cases involving patients who underwent submandibular gland excision. Their preoperative diagnostic examinations, postoperative complications, and glandular pathology are discussed. Sialolithiasis was the main histopathological finding, followed by chronic sialadenitis. Temporary paresis of the mandibular branch of the facial nerve was the most common postoperative complication. Removing the submandibular salivary gland may be followed by a number of complications, most of which can be avoided if the appropriate surgical technique is applied.
