Abscess formation in the soft tissues of the face is not an uncommonly encountered phenomenon in dental practice. However, the presence of oral mucosal pathologies can alter the manifestation of abscess formation. We report the illustration of a 51-year-old man, a known case of oral submucous fibrosis, who presented to us with a buccal abscess. After drainage of the abscess 2 days later, a piece of meat-bone was retrieved and found to be the causative factor. The paper discusses briefly the effects of such foreign body impaction and the clinician's role in the management.
