The authors study the gangrenous cellulitis epidemiology, about 11 cases in a series of 118 odontogenic cellulitis. They insist on the frequency of the gangrenous development in old patients, and the importance of an early adapted antibiotic therapy for the vital and functional prognosis. A large surgery procedure is also necessary. At last, the ulterior treatment is depending all the more on the general signs evolution, as the local aspect.
