Fig. 2. Representative histological findings of specimen A1, B1, and C1. A. Sialolith A1 with a single organic core in which the core was lost during the histological slide preparation (H&E staining, 4×). Scale bar=500 μm. B. Globular lipid particles found near the core of the sialolith (black arrowheads), (H&E staining, 20×). Scale bar=50 μm. C. Mineralized nodules were found in the outer layers of the core showing irregular mineralization (black arrow) (H&E staining, 20×). Scale bar=50 μm. D. Tonsillolith specimen (B1) (H&E staining, 4×). Scale bar=500 μm. E. The overall specimen exhibits a crystalline structure of organic material at a mature stage of its development (H&E staining, 20×). Scale bar=50 μm. F. A duct-like structure was observed at the center of squamous epithelium indicating the minor salivary gland duct (yellow arrowheads) (H&E staining, 20×). Scale bar=50 μm. G. Antrolith specimen (C1) (H&E staining, 4×). Scale bar=500 μm. H. The lesion was not encapsulated and showed a homogeneous lamellar bone with fibrous marrow cavities (H&E staining, 4×). Scale bar=50 μm. I. The woven bone was replaced by lamellar bone with Haversian canals at the periphery (H&E staining, 4×). Scale bar=50 μm.
