The uncontrolled diabetes is fast growing epidemic in India. This disease if missed before extraction will cause the patient to lose their maxillary bone as reported in this case report. The opportunistic candida infection was giving the diagnostic dilemma. The radiographs revealed osteolytic changes with destruction of the left maxilla. Sequestrum due to osteomyelitis was diagnosed and sequestrectomy was performed. The uncontrolled diabetes status improved post operatively only after sequestrum was removed. The patient was rehabilated with an obturator for the left maxillary region.
