Abstract

Garre's osteomyelitis is a distinctive type of chronic osteomyelitis associated with gross thickening of the periosteum of the bones and peripheral reactive bone formation resulting from mild irritation or infections. The condition is seen in children or young adults and the mandible is more affected than the maxilla in most cases. The following is a case report of a 10 year old boy having Garre’s osteomylitis of the mandible due to the long standing infection and improper treatment of a carious tooth.

Keywords: Primary chronic osteomyelitis (PCO), Acute osteomyelitis (AO), Chronic osteomyelitis with peripheral periostites COPP.
