Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A case of subcutaneous necrotising ulceration presenting on the chest wall following a dental abscess is described. The course, surgical treatment, chemotherapy and successful outcome of the case are annotated. The bacteriological findings in this and other cases presenting similarly are discussed, and the possible implication of bacteroides species, alone or in conjunction with Str. milleri, as an aetiological factor in this condition is discussed.
