Stafne’s Bone Cavity (SBC) is a well-documented lesion with clear radiographic diagnostic parameters. Usually occurring in the posterior mandible, the lesion contains salivary gland tissue and is asymptomatic and non-invasive. In contrast, anterior salivary gland inclusion defects are very rare and can present a diagnostic conundrum. They can be unilateral or bilateral, and may appear anywhere between the premolar teeth. The anterior variant is commonly confused with radicular cysts and radiographically can be similar to other insidious lesions. Like their posterior counterparts they occur more often in males in the fifth to seventh decades.
