Chronic sclerosing osteomyelitis of the mandible. Radiographic differential diagnosis from fibrous dysplasia

Acta Radiologica: Diagnosis
A Johannsen


Among 13 patients with chronic osteomyelitis of the lower jaw, clinical, radiologic and histologic difficulties were encountered in 5 cases, in the differential diagnosis from fibrous dysplasia. The radiologic, and in some measure the clinical and histologic features typical of the two diseases are described. Variations in the bone structure during the course of the disease, as well as periosteal new-bone formation, are characteristics of chronic osteomyelitis. When problems are encountered in differentiating between fibrous dysplasia with periodical pain and swelling, and osteomyelitis, repeated radiologic examinations are to be recommended.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
