Our previous studies based on intraoral dissection of fresh cadavers revealed that the fissure and loose connective tissues deep to the mucosa between the incisivus labii inferioris muscle and buccinator muscle form the entrance of the newly discovered bucco-mandibular space. To support the clinical significance of this space, we report the finding of a hematoma within this space in an adult fresh cadaver. Such a finding lends credence to studying the bucco-mandibular space and might help better understand the spread of some infections in the oral region.
