Medical History

His medical history is significant for hypertension and hypercholesterolemia. The patient has no known drug allergies. Also, the patient had a CAT scan done in June 2003 for symptoms of pneumonia and possible sepsis. He had CT of the head, chest, abdomen, and pelvis, in an attempt to diagnose the etiology of the pneumonia. The radiologist noticed an expansile intermediate-density mass in the right posterior maxilla, causing bony destruction and extending inferiorly into the maxillary sinus, measuring 2.5 X 2.1 cm in greatest dimensions. The radiologistís interpretation was a possible dentigerous cyst or odontogenic keratocyst, and oral surgery consultation was recommended.
