Florid osseous dysplasia (FOD) is a benign, non-neoplastic lesion characterized by multiple sclerosing masses only within the jawbones. It is most prevalent in middle-aged black women but uncommon in Orientals. Most cases are asymptomatic and should be left untreated. However, the jawbone involved in FOD is very susceptible to infection, including osteomyelitis developed from periodontitis, pulpopathosis, bone biopsy, wearing removable partial dentures, root canal therapy, tooth extraction, inappropriate dental treatment, etc. If secondary osteomyelitis develops, antibiotic and conservative dental therapy treatment is recommended for removing the sources of the odontogenic infection. Surgical removal of inflamed masses is indicated if the inflammatory signs and symptoms are persistent after antibiotic and conservative dental therapy. Here we report a rare FOD case in which an osteomyelitis resulting from generalized periodontitis and bone biopsy was triggered. The patient was accepted for surgery and follow-up in our department. The current literature of this disease is reviewed as well, focusing especially on the clinical manifestations, radiographic features, differential diagnosis, and treatment.
