As the parotid gland was normal, it was left behind. The incidence of TB in the jaw bones is very low, with mandible having a higher frequency than maxilla. Considering the overall prevalence of TB in India, the presence of epitheloid cell granuloma is indicative of TB unless proven otherwise 6. Oral and maxillofacial pathology: a rationale for diagnosis and treatment. This is otherwise called latent TB. The mechanism of propagation of tuberculosis infection to the mandibular bone can be by direct inoculation through dental extraction, lesions of the mucosa during teeth eruption, and spread from adjacent tissue or via a hematogenous route [ 7 ].

Along with the decorticated bone, the necrosed lymph nodes were sent for histopathological examination with high suspicion of tubercular osteomyelitis.
Incidence of tuberculous osteomyelitis of the jaw bones is very low. This rare incidence is the primary reason that this lesion gets mis-diagnosed many times. We report a case of tubercular osteomyelitis of the left body of the mandible in a 19 year old male patient who came to us with complains of. When compared to pyogenic infections and neoplastic diseases involving the mandible, tuberculous osteomyelitis of the mandible is extremely rare.
Radiographically, TB lesions does not present in a specific form. Dent Res J Isfahan.
Tuberculous Osteomyelitis of the Mandible
Patient was taken up for open biopsy. The chronic osteomyelitis area has a mottled appearance and is radio-opaque, which is designated as osteosclerosis that can be limited to the surrounding tooth root area.
In other cases, it can induce osteosclerosis of larger areas or areas of edentulous bone [ 14 ].
Summary. A 3-year-old girl child presented with swelling in her right lower jaw that had started 5 days previously. History revealed the child being.

Here we report the diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of a case, which is a classical presentation of tuberculous osteomyelitis of mandible.
Services on Demand Journal. Tuberculous lesions of the oral cavity are quite rare; despite the high incidence of the systemic disease, they can be explained by M. Most of the cases of tuberculosis of maxillofacial bones are secondary to pulmonary tuberculosis.
Introduction It is a common knowledge that tuberculosis once thought to be controlled via various screening and preventive programs has come back to challenge the medical fraternity in a big way especially in developing countries.
Case reports: tuberculous osteomyelitis. Journal section: Clinical and Experimental Dentistry. Publication Types: Case Report. Osteomyelitis affecting mandible. Primary orofacial tuberculosis (TB) is uncommon, especially with regard to the jaw. We report an unusual case for which the final diagnosis was.
For this reason, it was decided that the quantitative PCR qPCR technique should be used to increase the molecular diagnostic sensitivity [ 18 ].
Macroscopic and histopathological study revealed an extensive chronic osteomyelitic process Fig. Access Statistics. The treatment if initiated early results in complete resolution of the lesion.

|Received Feb 23; Accepted Jun Caseation occurs resulting in softening, liquefaction and formation of a subperiosteal abscess which can either burst intraorally or extraorally 3.
London: Asian Publishing House; Bacterial infections due to mycobacteria A. To identify mycobacteria as a causative agent, molecular diagnostics for tuberculosis was performed for the high diagnostic value [ 15 ]. The fusion of macrophages gives them the appearance of giant Langerhans cells in which the nuclei are distributed in episomal form, characteristic of the histological diagnosis of bone tuberculosis [ 12 ].
The patient never had any other symptom that could lead to a differential diagnosis of tubercular osteomyelitis.
