Infratemporal fossa abscess: a vague presentation with limited surgical approach

Salman Amiruddin, Mohd Zulizzi, Khairudin Abdullah, Mohd Sayuti Razali, Nor Kamaruzaman Esa, Yasrul Izad Abu Bakar.

Abstract
Infratemporal fossa abscess is a rare condition and difficult to be diagnosed clinically as the symptom is vague. Radiological imaging is crucial to determine the focal infection. Drainage of the abscess is also challenging due to limited access. We report a case of a healthy middle-aged man who had toothache and was eventually diagnosed to have infratemporal fossa abscess. This report aims to highlight the difficulties in diagnosing infratemporal fossa abscess.

Key words: Infratemporal fossa abscess, dental extraction, intraoral drainage
