Abstract

Cases of facial space infection of odontogenic origin are commonly reported in dentistry. Among them submandibular space infections are most common, but their extension to temporal region is seldom reported. Management of such infection is very challenging and requires expertise. This report describes the management of a rare case of a submandibular space infection extending to temporal space using incision and drainage in an eight years old male child.
