Abstract

Rationale - Antibiotics are commonly used for the management of various dental infections and have a proven role in decreasing morbidity and mortality caused by infectious diseases. Patient concerns, Diagnosis, and Interventions - Here we present a case of diagnosis and management of antibioma due to improper drainage of abscess following extraction of a carious tooth with improper and long-term usage of multiple antibiotics and treatment by drainage of consolidated abscess and prescribing serratiopeptidase and anti-inflammatory drugs.


Outcomes and Lessons- The frequent and over dosage of antibiotics leads to variety of consequences including formation of Antibioma. They are characterised by the formation of a localized pathology surrounded by thick fibrous tissue in response to prolonged use of antibiotics.
