Abstract:
The study was carried out with the aim of determining the epidemiological and clinical aspects of face and neck cellulitis of dental origin treated in the maxillofacial surgery service. Since studies regarding cellulitis are still rare in Madagascar and since its importance is alarming, the present study has been chosen. A retrospective study has been realized with the files of the 320 patients in the Service of Maxillofacial Surgery in the University Hospital Centre of Antananarivo, Madagascar, in the period between 1st January 2003 and 31 December 2005. Diagnosis of cellulitis of dental origin was on clinic examination. Most patients had illness story and swelling and/or discharge of pus in the skin. Factors favouring the apparition of cellulitis, location and type of cellulitis, symptoms, tooth or teeth responsible have also been investigated. Results showed that cellulitis was frequent in the region of Antananarivo, Madagascar. Those who are the most affected are children and young people, mainly student, working or non-working people. Moreover, pain and swelling are the alarming symptoms of this pathology. Also, it was found that lower molars constitute the most frequent causal teeth. They are responsible of lower cheek cellulitis and cellulitis of the mandibular region.`
