Odontogenic Cutaneous Fistula : Report of two cases

Nafisa Samir, Abdulaziz Al-Mahrezi, Salim Al-Sudairy

The misdiagnosis as a skin infection often results in inappropriate management. We here present two cases of odontogenic cutaneous fistula that were seen after being treated unnecessarily with antibiotics.
