Osteomyelitis of the jaws is more common in developing countries and their treatment may be prolonged and difficult. Osteomyelitis is an acute or chronic inflammation involving both the cortical and trabecular aspects of bone or bone marrow. Cranial bones are less commonly affected. Inflammation with involvement of surrounding structures causes great risk like cerebral abscess, encephalitis, or meningitis. Osteomyelitis is more commonly seen in mandible than maxilla. Here we present a rare case of chronic osteomyelitis in the maxilla in elderly male. The patient was treated with sequestrectomy and no recurrence was seen in the follow up.

Key words:
Bone, Chronic, Inflammation, Maxilla, Osteomyelitis
