KALKUR, C; SATTUR, AP; NAIKMASUR, VG  e  GOVINDRAJ, S J. Masticatory, temporal and buccal space infection in an immunocompromised patient: a case report. S. Afr. dent. j. [online]. 2018, vol.73, n.1, pp.43-45. ISSN 0375-1562.

'AIDS' (Acquired Immunity Deficiency Syndrome) is a term used to describe the various clinical syndromes, specific opportunistic infections or malignancies that can occur with HIV infection. Oral manifestations of these diseases are common in people with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection and may be due to a decline in immune function. Hence patients with AIDS are subjected to recurrent, life threatening opportunistic infection. This is a case report of a 70yr old female who presented with infection of the right buccal, masticator and submandibular spaces. A routine blood report revealed seropositivity for HIV infection. She was treated with antibiotics and underwent an incision and drainage following hospitalization.

Palavras-chave : Masticatory; Submandibular space infection; Opportunistic infection.
