- Abstract -

C-reactive protein (CRP) is an acute phase protein, synthesized by the liver, whose levels in blood increase in response to various infectious processes.
This study sought to establish a correlation between the blood concentration of C-reactive protein (CRP) and different clinical stages of oro-maxillo-facial odontogenic infections.

Before the medical and surgical treatment was applied, the blood CRP concentration was increased, high above the biological reference value.

These values have decreased with the remission of the infections symptoms.

We donít reported cases of oro-maxillo-facial infection where CRP is proved to be absent.

Key words: C reactive protein, odontogenic infection, surgical treatment
