Aplasia of major salivary glands is very rare. Compensatory hypertrophy of the rest of the glands can result in clinico-radiological masses. We present a report of a rare case of non-syndromic bilateral submandibular gland aplasia with hypertrophied sublingual salivary tissue, the latter herniating through mylohyoid boutonnière to present as a palpable mass on the left side with corresponding CT findings. Multiplanar evaluation is emphasised by utilizing multidetector CT.
