To analyze the general information,clinical symptoms, etiology of infection, and complications of oral and maxillofacial space infection in patients with different ages, in order to provide references for prevention of complications.

METHODS:

Statistical analysis was performed with SPSS 20.0 software package.

RESULTS:

All patients were divided into 2 groups. 152(43.68%) patients were senior and 196(56.32% ) patients were younger. In the two groups, male patients accounted for 59.69% in the younger group, 59.87% in the senior group. There was no significant difference. We also have found that label test and interval times of symptoms appeared to visit. There was no significant difference. 51.53% of the younger patients had negative bacterial culture results, which was significantly more than those of the senior groups.

CONCLUSIONS:
