OSTEOMYELITIS OF TEMPORAL BONE: A CASE REPORT

Dr.Kalpana Sharma, Dr Nabanita Ghosh

Abstract


Skull-based osteomyelitis, which is a true bony infection, originates from a chronic and inadequately treated infection. Because of the complex craniofacial skeletal anatomy and associated aesthetic concerns, osteomyelitis of the craniofacial skeleton must be uniquely managed and is more difficult to treat than osteomyelitis of other bones of the body. From the tertiary health care center of Guahati Medical College we report a case of 51 yrs male presenting with right sided painfulĀ  scalp swelling and tooth infection which is a cytologically and radiologically proven case of osteomylieties of temporal bone.
