Myositis ossificans of infraorbital musculature in uncontrolled diabetic.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Myositis ossificans traumatica is a form of dystrophic calcification that leads to heterotopic ossification of intramuscular connective tissue. It is rare in the orofacial region. A history of trauma, conventional radiography and computed tomography, along with histopathological examination, can be used effectively to diagnose this condition. We present a unique case of infected myositis ossificans traumatica in the infraorbital region in an uncontrolled diabetic.
