Klinefelter syndrome is chromosomal abnormality seen in males, linked with hypergonadotrophic hypogonadism with increased risk to metabolic syndromes; usually diabetes and cardiovascular diseases (CVD). Diabetes is a prevalent metabolic disorder which compromises the individual’s immunity and makes them vulnerable to infection. Oro-fascial infections in the maxillofacial region are very frequently diagnosed in Diabetes Mellitus patients with uncontrolled glycaemic levels. Delay in treatment can cause spread into various Oro-fascial spaces which could be fatal. Prompt surgical treatment with medical management should be strictly undertaken. Here we discuss a patient with klinefelter syndrome reported with potential deep neck space infection with uncontrolled glycaemic index, both surgical and medical management been discussed for the same.
