ABSTRACTOdontogenic cutaneous fistula is the result of abnormal drainage originating from a chronic periapical infection. It represents a diagnostic challenge because they are frequently erroneously labeled as a dermatological lesion. The differential diagnosis is broad, including pyogenic granuloma, actinomycosis, congenital malformations and others. We present a 58-year-old woman with a skin lesion secondary to an odontogenic fistula that presented rapid improvement after drainage and fistulectomy. We consider it important to know about this pathology to avoid unnecessary delays in the diagnosis and adequate treatment.
