Osseous Dysplasia Secondary Infection: A Case Report

Introduction: Osseous dysplasia is a benign tumor of the jaws predominantly occurring in melanoderm women. The pathogenesis remains unknown. Its often fortuitous discovery usually is in the fourth decade of life. Its treatment involves surgery. Our aim was to report a case of osseous dysplasia secondary infection in Senegal. Observation: The over sixty-year-old patient initially came for recurring old suppuration. A prior history of dental avulsions and self-medication was found out. The clinical features were predominant chronic osteitic manifestations. Its radiologic presentation suggested a florid form. The combination of spiramycin-metronidazole had to be given twice. The isolated sequestrum was enucleated and the anatomopathology confirmed the diagnostics. Discussion: The patient’s age conformed to late discovery due to silent progression and poor access to medical care. The prior iatrogenic avulsions can be explained by the absence of systematic radiological exploration and by the unawareness of the inconspicuous tumor. The clinical and radiological features at this stage of the osseous dysplasia secondary infection were typical. The treatment and the follow-up were dependent on the prevailing work conditions. Conclusion: The chronic osteitic manifestations are indicative of osseous dysplasia in elderly women in Senegal.
