Abstract

Herein, we are presenting a first case report where multiple salivary glands abscesses were diagnosed to be due to N.asteroides. Minor trauma of buccal mucosa, due to cleansing of teeth unhygienically, was most probable mode of infection. It was managed successfully by surgical drainage and post surgical co-trimoxazole therapy.
