Osteopetrosis is a rare skeletal dystrophy of unknown origin, characterized by diffuse abnormal thickness and density of bones. The first report of osteopetrosis was by Heinrich Albers Schonberg in 1904. The disease has also been designated as ‘marble bone disease’ ‘osteosclerosis fragilis generalisata’, ‘congenital osteosclerosis’. The affected bones exhibit hardness along with brittleness. Dyson (1970) after examining the available literature, found only 16 references to Albers Schonberg disease complicated by osteomyelitis of the jaws. It was therefore considered appropriate to record the following 2 cases.
