BACKGROUND: Periosteal fasciitis is rare in the head and neck. We believe only two cases of fasciitis-induced erosion through the mandibular cortical plate have previously been reported. RESULTS: Management of a case of periosteal fasciitis with bone erosion at the mandibular angle is reported in a 38-year-old man. CONCLUSIONS: Misdiagnosis of fasciitis in the past has led to inappropriate management and unnecessary morbidity. The principles of diagnosis and management of this unusual and confusing disorder are highlighted.
