Osteopathia striata with cranial sclerosis (OS-CS) is characterized by linear bone dysplasia at the long bone radiographically and sclerotic change at the cranium. The purpose of this case report is to study the symptoms and treatments of osteomyelitis in a patient with OS-CS. A 41-year-old patient had pus discharge from a fistula at the mental region and increase in radiolucencies with sequestra in panoramic radiograph images. Computed tomography (CT) as well as radiograph images for the whole skeleton were taken. The patient was diagnosed with OS-CS. Sequestrectomy and fistulectomy were performed. The patient recovered and no relapse occurred within six months after surgery. For diagnosis of OS-CS, CT and additional radiograph images for the whole skeleton are required. Because of the increased bone density, this patient is prone to relapse after sequestrectomy. Therefore, the surgeon must minimize trauma with the least incision and exfoliation, and preoperative antibiotics.
