Abstract

Cutaneous sinus tract of dental origin is a syndrome rather than a disease entity, and is composed of a periapical abscess, sinus tract and granulomatous skin change at the opening of the tract. The presence of an intermittently- draining, granulomatous lesion on the face or neck should alert clinicians to the necessity of a routine dental examination, including radiographic studies. Early correct diagnosis and appropriate dental treatment can prevent unnecessary and ineffective antibiotic therapy or surgical treatment. We report a case of a 68 year-old woman with a cutaneous sinus tract on the right nasolabial fold, secondary to infection of eight maxillary remnant teeth.
