Osteomyelitis of jaws

  1. 1. Osteomyelitis of the Jaws Dr. Ramank Mathur PG OMFS
  2. 2.  The word “osteomyelitis” originates from the ancient Greek words osteon (bone) and muelinos (marrow) and means infection of medullary portion of the bone.  The infection- pus and edema in the medullary cavity and beneath the periosteum compromises or obstructs the local blood supply.
  3. 3.  Following ischemia, the infected bone becomes necrotic and leads to sequester formation, which is considered a classical sign of osteomyelitis (Topazian 1994, 2002).  True infection of the bone induced by pyogenic microorganisms (Marx1991).
  4. 4.  In the preantibiotic era: an acute onset secondary chronic process (Wassmund 1935; Axhausen 1934).  After the introduction of antibiotics: Subacute or chronic forms of osteomyelitis (Becker 1973; Bünger 1984).
  5. 5.  Suppurative osteomyelitis(acute & chronic)  Chronic sclerosing non-suppurative osteomyelitis or Garre’s osteomyelitis  Osteomyelitis accompanying systemic disease such as tuberculosis,actinomycosis & syphillis
  6. 6. Reference Classification Classification criteria Hudson JW Osteomyelitis of the jaws: a 50- year perspective. J Oral Maxillofac Surg 1993 Dec; 51(12):1294-301 I. Acute forms of osteomyelitis (suppurative or nonsuppurative) A. Contagious focus 1. Trauma 2. Surgery 3. Odontogenic Infection B. Progressive 1. Burns 2. Sinusitis 3. Vascular insufficiency C. Hematogenous(metastatic) 1. Developing skeleton (children) II. Chronic forms of osteomyelitis A. Recurrent multifocal 1. Developing skeleton (children) 2. Escalated osteogenic (activity < age 25 years) B. Garre's 1. Unique proliferative subperiosteal reaction 2. Developing skeleton (children and young adults) Classification based on clinical picture and radiology. The two major groups (acute and chronic osteomyelitis) are differentiated by the clinical course of the disease after onset, relative to surgical and antimicrobial therapy. The arbitrary time limit of 1 month is used to differentiate acute from chronic osteomyelitis (Marx 1991; Mercuri1991; Koorbusch1992).
  7. 7. C. Suppurative or nonsuppurative 1. Inadequately treated forms 2. Systemically compromised forms 3. Refractory forms (chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis CROM) D. Diffuse sclerosing 1. Fastidious microorganisms 2. Compromised host/pathogen interface
