We report a case of skull base osteomyelitis that presented 4–8 weeks after a level 2 maxillectomy for a plexiform ameloblastoma of the right posterior maxilla. This is an extremely rare complication, and we know of no previously reported cases that developed after maxillectomy. We summarise the presentation, differential diagnosis and management.
