Differential Diagnosis


This patient had history of recurrent painful tender swelling occurring on left side of jaw since last 1 year. It used to burst open to discharge pus. It used to heal with antibiotic just to recur again within 1 to 2 months. The skin was adherent to the underlying mandible. Extraction of the corresponding infected molar cured the problem for ever.
