Potentially fatal oro-facial infections: five cautionary tales


, : Potentially fatal oro-facial infections: five cautionary tales. Journal of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh 47(3): 585-586

Five cases of oro-facial infection leading to life-threatening complications are reported. Although all had been treated with antibiotics prior to maxillofacial referral, lack of surgical intervention had allowed progressive infection. The importance of resuscitation, supportive therapy, extraction of involved teeth to remove the source of infection and drainage of pus is emphasised
