Abstract

Sialolithiasis represents the most common disorders of salivary glands in middle-aged patients. It has been hypothesized that the retrograde migration of bacteria from the oral cavity to gland ducts may facilitate the formation of stones. Thus, in the present study, a microbiome characterization of salivary calculi was performed to evaluate the abundance and the potential correlations between microorganisms constituting the salivary calculi microbiota. Our data supported the presence of a core microbiota of sialoliths constituted principally by Streptococcus spp., Fusobacterium spp. and Eikenella spp., along with the presence of important pathogens commonly involved in infective sialoadenitis.
