Abstract
Introduction: Infratemporal abscess due to odontogenic infection is a rare case, because most dental infections spread through the submandibular space or to the deep neck spaces. Abscess formation in this area may lead to dangerous complications, which infection from this area might spread through the pterygoid plexus to the cavernous sinus or through the valveless ophthalmic veins into the orbit, and may result in intracranial and orbital complications.
Case report: We reported 3 cases of infratemporal abscess which were handled at the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery department of Dr. Hasan Sadikin Hospital Bandung. Patients were two males and one female. They all had a history of toothache in the left lower jaw region. All of the patients underwent surgical incision drainage.
Conclusion: Diagnosis of an infratemporal abscess can be confirmed by careful history taking and clinical examination. Early detection and aggressive treatment of infratemporal abscess due to odontogenic infection can avoid mortality and minimized complication caused by delay in treatment.

Key words: Keyword : Infratemporal space, Abscess
