KARPAGAVALLI, S et al. Chronic Suppurative Osteomyelitis of the Maxilla - rare case presentation. S. Afr. dent. j. [online]. 2019, vol.74, n.3, pp.126-128. ISSN 0375-1562.

Chronic Suppurative Osteomyelitis of the maxilla is a relatively uncommon lesion with scarce information in the medical literature regarding its clinical/pathological status and treatment perspectives. We report a rare clinical case of a patient presenting with osteomyelitis of the maxilla with pus discharge. The review discusses the pathogenesis, clinical course, investigative procedures and treatment. The diagnosis in this patient was based on data assessed from a specialized imaging technique and from the histopathological findings. Timely medical and surgical therapy reduced the morbidity which may otherwise have occurred due to the significant complications associated with this chronic lesion. This interventional approach can thus be recommended as one of the novel treatments for osteomyelitis of the jaws with the prospect of significant clinical and radiological improvement, as was shown in the present case.
