A drainage spot in the gums. Referred to as a "gum boil" in the past, is a sign that infectious pus is draining into the mouth. Very often people have fistulae with no symptoms at all; however, the cause of this drainage must be addressed. We have recently reviewed a case in which pus from a dental abcess entered the lungs and caused a pulmonary abcess which killed the patient.
