Abstract

Septicemia caused by phlegmone arising from acute suppurative apical periodontitis was reported.
A 53 year-old male emergency patient was admitted to our hospital with the complaint of pain in left temporal region and marasmus. Anaerobic gram positive coccus was isolated by bacteriologic examination of blood and pus.
The lesion was diagnosed as septicemia caused by phlegmone arising from apical periodontitis of left maxillary cuspid and was treated with antibiotics, incision and drainage. Postoperative course was uneventful and no recurrence was observed.
