Keywords:osteomyelitis, extensive sclerosis
Both patients presented with extensive sclerosis limited to the tooth-bearing regions of the jaws. The areas affected by secondary osteomyelitis show radiolucent zones surrounding the radiopaque lesions (Figure 1). The first patient presented with a jaw fracture following a failed extraction attempt (Figure 1- arrow). Due to the extensive bony sclerosis, associated impacted teeth are
common (Figure 2).
