Hyperimmunoglobulin E syndrome is a primary immunodeficiency state that is characterized by eczema, recurrent skin and lung infections, and markedly increased levels of IgE. Odontogenic infection can spread to vital and deep structures in such immunocompromised patients. We report a case of a 19-year-old man with hyperimmunoglobulin E syndrome presenting deep neck space infection that had spread from periapical periodontitis of the lower molars. A computed tomography scan showed an area of bony destruction in the left mandible and abscess formation in the submandibular and submental spaces. The patient was successfully treated by cervical drainage, extraction of the causative teeth, and antibiotic therapy. The present case highlights the importance of adequate treatment of dental infections in immunocompromised patients.
