Osteoradionecrosis of the Zygoma
Osteoradionecrosis occurs in 4.74% to 37.5% of patients following radiation therapy for head and neck cancer. Osteoradionecrosis mostly happens in the mandible but seldom occurs in other maxillofacial bones. Here, the authors reported a rare case of zygomatic osteoradionecrosis which occurred after maxillectomy and then radiotherapy because of maxillary myoepithelial carcinoma. After resection of zygoma sequestrum, the defect was repaired with forehead flap and healed uneventfully.
