Abstract

  A systematic approach for the diagnosis of oral squamous cell carcinoma is important because of the poor overall 5-year survival rate. Patients with chronic swelling of the head and neck, even in the presence of pain or drainage, may have a malignant neoplasm. This is particularly germane when appropriate treatment for a presumed infection (including culture guided antibiotic therapy) elicits limited or no clinical improvement. This article describes a case of invasive squamous cell carcinoma of the mandible that presented with features suggestive of chronic osteomyelitis.
