A subsequent CT seen of her abdomen was negative, and a barium enema revealed only multiple sigmoid diverticuli. A white blood cell count at that time was 13.3 x [10.sup.9]/L (13,300 [mm.sup.3] [normal differential]).

The etiologic factors involved in the sialolith formation can be classified into two different groups: on one hand, saliva retention due to morpho-anatomic factors (salivary duct stenosis, salivary duct diverticuli, etc.) and on the other, saliva composition factors (high super saturation, crystallization inhibitor deficit, etc.) (7)
