Abstract

The present report describes two cases of dental complications of meningococcemia at an early age. The meningococcal infection in these young children resulted in limb amputation and significant plastic surgery. Dental treatment and psychological considerations are described in both cases. Similar dental complications, especially in the premaxilla, were found. Some of the severely affected teeth were extracted.
