Mandibular osteomyelitis often is associated with involvement of the soft tissues. The purpose of this study was to clarify the relationship between CT patterns and the presence of inflammation in soft tissues. 30 cases diagnosed with osteomyelitis of the mandible were evaluated with CT scans. CT patterns of osteomyelitis were classified into four types: lytic, sclerotic, mixed & sequestrum patterns. Location extent of the lesion and change of the cortical plate were evaluated. The data demonstrate a close interaction between cortical plate disruption and muscle inflammation. The extent of inflammation including soft tissue involvement was better appreciated with CT in osteomyelitis
