Albers-Schönberg disease is an osteodistrofic diseases of the skeleton which is characterized by an alteration in the osseous tissue build up and defective remodelling.
In the adult form, which is characterized by an autosomal dominant inheritance, jaws are often involved, and osteomyelitis is a typical report. We show the case of a 60 years old man who showed a particularly severe form of osteomyelitis of the mandible which came out to be due to an Actinomyces-supported infection.
