Tubercular osteomyelitis of the maxilla & mandible was earlier considered as a rare disease but the incidence is on the rise with isolated presentation in the jaws. The rarity of the disease in the jaws usually has clinical doubt especially when the positive history of systemic infection was present. Early diagnosis of tubercular osteomyelitis will certainly reduce the morbidity of disease condition. Hereby we report two cases of tubercular osteomyelitis of maxilla & mandible.
Case 1: A male patient of 19 year old of tubercular osteomyelitis was referred for medical management & 2nd male patient of 58 year old who presented with a non-healing socket since 1 month. He was treated with surgical intervention & anti-tubercular drugs.
