Life threatening infection of odontogenic origin may extend to potential spaces formed by fascial planes of lower head and upper cervical area. The incidence of these space infections has been gradually reduced by modern antibiotic therapy. Sublingual hematoma is a rare complication usually seen after oral anticoagulant use. Sublingual hematoma secondary to deep neck infection is rare unpreviously reported before. Review of literature didn’t reveal any case reports of sublingual hematoma following deep neck infection of fascial spaces. A case of deep neck infection of odontogenic origin with subsequent sublingual hematoma with ultimate fatal outcome will be described in this conference.
