Abstract

Odontogenic cutaneous fistula or sinus is an uncommon, but well documented condition, which is often initially misdiagnosed as a sole cutaneous lesion and inappropriately treated. The misdiagnosis as a skin infection often results in inappropriate management. We here present two cases of odontogenic cutaneous fistula that were seen after being treated unnecessarily with antibiotics.
