Abstract

Osteomyelitis is an infection of the bone which is accompanied by bony destruction and sequestrum formation. Osteomyelitis of frontal bone requires us to deal with great caution as it can lead to a great deal of morbidity and mortality. Often when surgical treatment provided, it is radical and leaves behind surgical defect over the frontal bone. We report a case of a 14 year old boy diagnosed with frontal bone osteomyelitis of the left side who was treated using antibiotic loaded bone cement.
