Skin carbuncles are debilitating skin infections commonly seen in elderly patients with diabetes. These infections develop when a cluster of adjacent furuncles coalesce to form one inflammatory mass. While they commonly occur on the nape of the neck and back, rarer sites involving the face and head have been noted. Management of these rare sites is urgent because of the potential intracranial complications and the surgical outcome is often unsatisfactory due to associated facial scarring. Intraoral drainage is advocated to avoid this; however, when the carbuncle involves a larger area, debridement from the exterior is necessary. The resultant soft-tissue defect requires a skin graft or a flap for coverage, but this may still lead to an unsatisfactory cosmetic outcome. The authors report a case of a carbuncle involving an extensive area over the right temporofacial region, including its management and the remarkable post-debridement cosmetic outcome despite avoidance of plastic surgery techniques due to the patient’s high risk associated with anesthesia.
