This paper reviews the major clinical and radiographic features of sialoliths and illustrates these with an unusual case of multiple sialoliths within the submandibular gland duct. The differential diagnosis of other calcific structures both within and outside the salivary gland that may mimic a sialolith is also presented.

    ABSTRACT: The linear, open system of industrial development-`produce/use/throw away'-is unsustainable even if it is restricted to the existing industrialised countries. If an attempt is made to spread it globally, it would not only be environmentally disastrous, it would also have severe economic and social consequences. Since the early 1970's, the Indices of Sustainable Economic Welfare of the UK, the US and Germany have all been in decline despite increases in the GNPs, as the negative effects of growth have exceeded the beneficial effects. The main causes of this unsustainability are described, pointing to the necessity of adopting a circular, closed system of development that is waste and pollution minimising. In such a mode of development, service systems will aim for optimum resource efficiency by using eco-efficient technologies. Guiding concepts for application of eco-efficiency are illustrated, together with an outline of the Lifecycle Inventory method of product, package and integrated waste management

    ABSTRACT: Specialties within health care are often identified by the public profile provided by members within the private clinical practice arena. This is clearly important but often the real activity of a specialty discipline exists within the training institutions. This is an unseen area for most, both members of the public as well as professional colleagues, as papers reporting developments of all kinds are delivered to highly specific target audiences and publications reporting research are published in journals again targeting specific audiences. Publication in national journals is important and provides a glimpse of research activities and a wealth of clinical material in the form of reviews and case reports directed again to a specific target audience. This paper addresses the profile of oral medicine in Australia by presenting the papers published in the Australian Dental Journal within a 10-year bracket.
