Osteomyelitis of the mandible at a young age may occur as a complication of immunocompromised status or bone disorders. Osteomyelitis rarely occurs in the maxilla due to thin bone and collateral blood supply of the maxillary bone. We report here, a rare case of maxillary osteomyelitis that led to the diagnosis of the underlying condition of osteopetrosis. The clinical and radiographical features are being discussed here, along with the relevant review of literature.
