Abstract

This condition is rarely encountered after major head and neck surgery. Aggressive surgical debridement and antibiotic therapy remains the mainstay of treatment. Prompt diagnosis and treatment are mandatory due to the potential life-threatening complications associated with the condition. Bony resection will aid in adequate flap placement.
