Abstract Subcutaneous emphysema is rarely encountered in endodontic practice and consequently there is a dearth of information in the dental literature about this complication. The following report presents an interesting case of periorbital emphysema encountered during endodontic therapy. Attention is drawn to the presentation and management of this mostly preventable complication. PMID: 24201616 DOI: 10.1038/sj.bdj.2013.1044 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLIN
