Submandibular abscess in a pregnant patient with multiple antibiotic allergies: A case report

Abstract

Objective: This article describes and discusses the management of submandibular abscesses in pregnant women with allergies to several antibiotics. Case Report: A 34-year-old pregnant female patient came to the dental clinic with complaints of swelling and pain in her left cheek and difficulty in opening her jaw. The patient was diagnosed with a left submandibular abscess. Result: The doctor performed an odontectomy and extracted the remaining roots, which were suspected to be the cause of the abscess. The patient was also advised to visit the emergency room at Brawijaya University Hospital for further treatment after coamoxiclav failed to alleviate the symptoms. Conclusion: This case reports a dramatic course of treatment in a pregnant patient with a submandibular abscess accompanied by allergies to several antibiotics. Surgical intervention in pregnant women requires appropriate clinical considerations and guidelines to prevent complications.
