Objective: To determine the relationship between regiomaxilofacial
abscesses with the monsoon and dry seasons.

Material and Methods: Type of research used in this study is
descriptive observational. The research design used in this study is the
cross sectional study.

Results: The results of this study are not significant in the designation
of the relationship between abscess maxillofacial and climate in South
Sulawesi, because it is caused by several factors including the number
of samples and the interval of data used, as well as environmental
factors such as temperature and air pressure.

Conclusion: This study regarding the relationship between
maxillofacial region abscess and climate in South Sulawesi showed
that as many as 31 abscess cases in Ibnu Sina Hospital, 9 abscess cases
in Unhas Teaching Hospital, 3 cases of abscesses in East of Indonesia
University Hospital occurred during monsoon season, while 27 cases of
Ibnu Hospital abscess Sina, 2 abscess cases in Unhas Teaching Hospital,
3 abscess cases in East of Indonesia University Hospital occurred
during dry season. This indicates that there is a relationship between
the development of abscesses when it’s monsoon season or when
barometric pressure is low.
