Case report 834: Chronic sclerosing osteomyelitis of the mandible with long bone periostitis

Skeletal Radiol. 1994 Apr;23(3):225-7. doi: 10.1007/BF00197468.


We present the case of a patient with primary chronic osteomyelitis of the mandible, the radiological appearance of which is compatible with a diagnosis of chronic sclerosing osteomyelitis. The accompanying femoral and tibial periosteal reactive new bone formation and the benign clinical course suggest that this presentation may represent a form of chronic multifocal osteomyelitis.
