Osteomyelitis of the jaws is a challenging disease for clinicians and patients despite many advances in the diagnosis and treatment of the disease. Any adverse changes arising from any immunosuppressive systemic diseases will readily manifest itself in the oral cavity.

Osteomyelitis is not an exception to this observation. Thus a careful evaluation of an apparently healthy individual presenting with a jaw swelling that may be associated with odontogenic infection must always be emphasized.

Comprehensive Maxillofacial Osteomyelitis provides detailed information about osteomyelitis of the jaws.

Key features:

  • - Chapters serve to familiarize the reader with the disease, its etiopathogenesis and clinicopathological features
  • - The classification, imaging modalities and disease management are discussed in detail
  • - A detailed year wise bibliography of the literature of almost all the articles and books published on osteomyelitis of the jaws is presented.
  • - An explanation of how osteomyelitis was diagnosed at earlier times and how it is managed these days is given
  • - Critical analysis as well as recommendations regarding new terms is incorporated.
  • - A section focusing on several images of osteomyelitis of the jaws is presented to enhance the reader’s understanding

Comprehensive Maxillofacial Osteomyelitis is the essential reference for medical and dental students on this disease.
