Inflammation of an INTERVERTEBRAL DISC or disk space which may lead to disk erosion. Until recently, discitis has been defined as a nonbacterial inflammation and has been attributed to aseptic processes (e.g., chemical reaction to an injected substance). However, recent studies provide evidence that infection may be the initial cause, but perhaps not the promoter, of most cases of discitis. Discitis has been diagnosed in patients following discography, myelography, lumbar puncture, paravertebral injection, and obstetrical epidural anesthesia. Discitis following chemonucleolysis (especially with chymopapain) is attributed to chemical reaction by some and to introduction of microorganisms by others.

Cat-scratch disease with paravertebral mass and osteomyelitis. (1/1101)

The case of a 9-year-old girl with cat-scratch disease (CSD) complicated by development of a paravertebral mass and osteomyelitis is presented. Following multiple scratches and inguinal lymphadenopathy, she developed back pain, and imaging demonstrated a paravertebral mass with evidence of osteomyelitis involving vertebra T9. The diagnosis was made on the basis of detection of Bartonella henselae by use of molecular techniques on an aspirate from the vertebral column and supportive serology for infection with B. henselae. Eleven other cases of this unusual manifestation associated with CSD have been reported in the literature and are reviewed. The patient was treated with gentamicin, followed by rifampicin and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, orally and made a favorable recovery over 7 months. This is comparable with other case reports, regardless of the choice of antibiotic therapy. CSD in immunocompetent hosts is not always self-limiting, and tissues beyond the lymph nodes can be involved.  (+info)

Safety of long-term therapy with ciprofloxacin: data analysis of controlled clinical trials and review. (2/1101)

We reviewed the literature and the manufacturer's U.S. clinical data pool for safety data on long-term administration of ciprofloxacin (Bayer, West Haven, CT). Only controlled clinical trials including patients treated for >30 days were selected. We identified 636 patients by literature search and 413 patients in the Bayer U.S. database who fulfilled our search criteria; the average treatment duration for these patients was 130 and 80 days, respectively. Main indications for long-term therapy were osteomyelitis, skin and soft-tissue infection, prophylaxis for urinary tract infection, mycobacterial infections, and inflammatory bowel disease. Adverse events, premature discontinuation of therapy, and deaths occurred at a similar frequency in both treatment arms. Most adverse events occurred early during therapy with little increase in frequency over time. As with short-term therapy, gastrointestinal events were more frequent than central nervous system or skin reactions, but pseudomembranous colitis was not observed. No previously unknown adverse events were noted. We conclude that ciprofloxacin is tolerated as well as other antibiotics when extended courses of therapy are required.  (+info)

Nocardia osteomyelitis in a pachymeningitis patient: an example of a difficult case to treat with antimicrobial agents. (3/1101)

Antimicrobial agents played a miraculous role in the treatment of bacterial infections until resistant bacteria became widespread. Besides antimicrobial-resistant bacteria, many factors can influence the cure of infection. Nocardia infection may be a good example which is difficult to cure with antimicrobial agents alone. A 66-year-old man developed soft tissue infection of the right buttock and thigh. He was given prednisolone and azathioprine for pachymeningitis 3 months prior to admission. Despite surgical and antimicrobial treatment (sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim), the infection spread to the femur and osteomyelitis developed. The case showed that treatment of bacterial infection is not always as successful as was once thought because recent isolates of bacteria are more often resistant to various antimicrobial agents, intracellular parasites are difficult to eliminate even with the active drug in vitro, and infections in some sites such as bone are refractory to treatment especially when the patient is in a compromised state. In conclusion, for the treatment of infections, clinicians need to rely on laboratory tests more than before and have to consider the influence of various host factors.  (+info)

Incidence, outcomes, and cost of foot ulcers in patients with diabetes. (4/1101)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the incidence of foot ulcers in a large cohort of patients with diabetes, the risk of developing serious complications after diagnosis, and the attributable cost of care compared with that in patients without foot ulcers. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Retrospective cohort study of patients with diabetes in a large staff-model health maintenance organization from 1993 to 1995. Patients with diabetes were identified by algorithm using administrative, laboratory, and pharmacy records. The data were used to calculate incidence of foot ulcers, risk of osteomyelitis, amputation, and death after diagnosis of foot ulcer, and attributable costs in foot ulcer patients compared with patients without foot ulcers. RESULTS: Among 8,905 patients identified with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, 514 developed a foot ulcer over 3 years of observation (cumulative incidence 5.8%). On or after the time of diagnosis, 77 (15%) patients developed osteomyelitis and 80 (15.6%) required amputation. Survival at 3 years was 72% for the foot ulcer patients versus 87% for a group of age- and sex-matched diabetic patients without foot ulcers (P < 0.001). The attributable cost for a 40- to 65-year-old male with a new foot ulcer was $27,987 for the 2 years after diagnosis. CONCLUSIONS: The incidence of foot ulcers in this cohort of patients with diabetes was nearly 2.0% per year. For those who developed ulcers, morbidity, mortality, and excess care costs were substantial compared with those for patients without foot ulcers. The results appear to support the value of foot-ulcer prevention programs for patients with diabetes.  (+info)

Femur osteomyelitis due to a mixed fungal infection in a previously healthy man. (5/1101)

We describe a previously healthy, 22-year-old man who, after a closed fracture of the femur and subsequent operation, developed chronic osteomyelitis. Within a few days, infected bone fragments, bone, and wound drainage repeatedly yielded three different filamentous fungi: Aspergillus fumigatus, Aspergillus flavus, and Chalara ellisii. Histologic examination of the bone revealed septate hyphae. After sequential necrotomies of the femur and irrigation-suction drainage with added antimycotic therapy, the infection ceased and the fracture healed. This case is unique in that it is the only known instance in which a long bone was affected in an immunocompetent individual, with no evidence of any systemic infection, by a mixed population of two different Aspergillus spp. and the rare filamentous fungus C. ellisii. Environmental factors that could potentiate the infection include blood and edema fluid resulting from the surgical procedure and the presence of the osteosynthetic plate.  (+info)

Fungal spinal osteomyelitis in the immunocompromised patient: MR findings in three cases. (6/1101)

The MR imaging findings of fungal spinal osteomyelitis in three recipients of organ transplants showed hypointensity of the vertebral bodies on T1-weighted sequences in all cases. Signal changes and enhancement extended into the posterior elements in two cases. Multiple-level disease was present in two cases (with a total of five intervertebral disks involved in three cases). All cases lacked hyperintensity within the disks on T2-weighted images. In addition, the intranuclear cleft was preserved in four of five affected disks at initial MR imaging. MR features in Candida and Aspergillus spondylitis that are distinct from pyogenic osteomyelitis include absence of disk hyperintensity and preservation of the intranuclear cleft on T2-weighted images. Prompt recognition of these findings may avoid delay in establishing a diagnosis and instituting treatment of opportunistic osteomyelitis in the immunocompromised patient.  (+info)

Aspergillus osteomyelitis in a child who has p67-phox-deficient chronic granulomatous disease. (7/1101)

Here we describe Aspergillus osteomyelitis of the tibia in a 9-year-old boy who has an autosomal recessive form of chronic granulomatous disease (CGD). The patient showed a p67-phagocyte oxidase (phox) deficiency, which is rare type of CGD in Japan. The initial treatment which consisted of surgical debridement and antibiotic therapy with amphotericin B (AMPH), did not control the infection. Aspergillus fumigatus (A. fumigatus) pure isolated from drainage fluid and necrotic bone tissue demonstrated less susceptible to antifungal agents, including AMPH, fluconazole and flucytosine. Recombinant interferon gamma was then administrated, and it was effective in controlling the course of severe invasive aspergillosis. This report indicates the use of interferon gamma might be helpful in control for Aspergillus osteomyelitis of the tibia in a child with CGD demonstrated p67-phox deficiency refractory to conventional therapy with AMPH.  (+info)

Mycobacterium bovis BCG causing vertebral osteomyelitis (Pott's disease) following intravesical BCG therapy. (8/1101)

We report a case of Mycobacterium bovis BCG vertebral osteomyelitis in a 79-year-old man 2.5 years after intravesical BCG therapy for bladder cancer. The recovered isolate resembled M. tuberculosis biochemically, but resistance to pyrazinamide (PZA) rendered that diagnosis suspect. High-pressure liquid chromatographic studies confirmed the diagnosis of M. bovis BCG infection. The patient was originally started on a four-drug antituberculous regimen of isoniazid, rifampin, ethambutol, and PZA. When susceptibility studies were reported, the regimen was changed to isoniazid and rifampin for 12 months. Subsequently, the patient was transferred to a skilled nursing facility for 3 months, where he underwent intensive physical therapy. Although extravesical adverse reactions are rare, clinicians and clinical microbiologists need to be aware of the possibility of disseminated infection by M. bovis BCG in the appropriate setting of clinical history, physical examination, and laboratory investigation.  (+info)

Chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO) is an inflammatory bone disease usually affecting children. A 9-year old boy presented with recurrent lower extremities pain and discomfort lasting for two years. In every time, symptoms vanished after several weeks. The patient received antibiotics only in one period of bone pain. In other occasions the patient didnt received any antibiotics. In last episode of bone pain, symptoms disappeared by use of naproxen. In patients X-rays, there were multifocal areas of sclerosis with a wide transitional zone accompanied by a fine periosteal reaction. Regarding his history and MRI, bone scan findings were more in favor of active inflammatory process in the involved regions. In needle biopsy and bone curetting of left & right tibiae, osteonecrosis, mild inflammatory fibrosis, and scattered chronic inflammatory cells consistent with chronic osteomyelitis were noticed. No malignant neoplastic tissue was identified. In 2-year follow-up, diagnosis of CRMO was
Chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO) is an inflammatory, non-infectious disorder of skeletal system mainly seen in children. We report a case of CRMO presenting with fever and leg pain. The patient was an 11-year-old boy complaining of a fever, swelling and pain on his right foot, and pain on both legs. Although serum levels of CK and aldolase were not increased, MRI imaging suggested polymyositis. Muscle biopsy showed interstitial infiltration of inflammatory cells without any evidences of dermatomyositis or polymyositis. One month later, he complained of a swelling, pain and redness of his left clavicle as recurrently experienced during the recent 6 months, and MRI investigation indicated the diagnosis of osteomyelitis. Bone biopsy was performed and showed chronic inflammatory changes with negative bacterial culture. Multiple bone lesions and muscle uptake of FDG in his legs were revealed by whole body FDG-PET/CT, and he was diagnosed as having CRMO with interstitial myositis. The ...

Chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO) is a rare aseptic, auto-inflammatory bone disorder. CRMO presents with bone pain with or without fever. The diagnosis of CRMO is a diagnosis of exclusion and should be included in the differential diagnosis of chronic inflammatory bone lesions in children. Cultures of the bone are typically sterile, antibiotic therapy does not result in clinical improvement whereas anti-inflammatory drugs improve the condition. Furthermore, biopsy should be considered in chronic and relapsing bone pain and swelling unresponsive to treatment. Herein, we present a nine-year-old boy complaining of recurrent pain in his upper and lower extremities. On examination he had mild fever and cervical lymphadenopathy. He also had experienced bone pain and weight loss in the recent month. Based on biopsy and bone scan he was finally diagnosed with CRMO. Naproxen and Pamidronate was prescribed and he was getting better and returned to normal life and activity without need to
In this article we illustrate an unusual case of chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO) in a 9 year old girl who presented with right thigh pain. The initial plain radiographs were normal. The white cell count was normal and there was a mild rise in C-reactive protein. Cross sectional imaging of the right femur showed a lesion with features suggestive of osteoid osteoma. However, when the lesion was excised, the appearances on histopathological examination were non-specific showing chronic inflammatory cells and the microbiological testing revealed no organisms. Six months later, this child presented with right shoulder pain and the subsequent imaging demonstrated bilateral clavicular lesions. At this stage, the diagnosis of CRMO was made based on the combination of the clinical, radiological, histopathological and microbiological features. This case demonstrates that the cross sectional imaging features of the bony lesion in CRMO can mimic osteoid osteoma.. ...
Chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO) is a rare condition thought to be under-diagnosed, with a true prevalence of more than the 1 in 10,000 estimated. It is a condition that is classically described as polyostotic with a relapsing and remitting course, preferentially affecting the metaphyses of tubular bones in the pediatric population. Lesions have characteristic appearances of cortical hyperostosis and mixed lytic/sclerotic medullary appearances radiographically, with active osteitis and periostitis best seen with fluid-sensitive sequences on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). There are reports of lesions resolving on follow-up radiographs and MRI scans, but no supporting images. In particular, although the marrow appearances and degree of osteitis have been shown to improve on MRI, complete resolution and remodeling back to normal has never been demonstrated. We present a case of a lesion that has completely healed and remodeled back to normal appearances on both radiographs and MRI, and

The goal of this report is to present an interesting case of generalized demodicosis, associated with a generalized pyoderma due to a resistant strain of Staphyloccocus aureus, and haematogenous osteomyelitis. Acute bacterial osteomyelitis caused by haematogenous spread is uncommon, with most cases occurring in puppies. Spread to the epiphysis is rare since the growth plate acts as a barrier. Superficial pyoderma is commonly associated to generalized Demodicosis, and Staphyloccocus aureus is frequently isolated, nowadays we have to face infections due to cephalosporins resistant strains. The puppy was a 3 months old mastiff of 17 kg of body weight.. History: He had been diagnosed pyoderma and treated with cephalexin orally during 7 days, then he had fever and mild lameness of the left rear limb, at that moment the dog received a single dose of dexamethasone, then an X-ray was taken and osteomyelitis of the left femur was diagnosed and treated with ceftriaxone IM for ten days, he was also given ...

Subacute hematogenous osteomyelitis is an insidious infection, which commonly has a delayed diagnosis. We describe the case of a 7-year-old boy with subacute osteomyelitis, which was initially considered to be a bone tumor. Infection should be considered in all cases of bone pain, especially in children, even in the absence of typical systemic features of inflammation.

ISSN 2309-8309.. To date, no evidence-based guidelines for the treatment of chronic osteomyelitis exist. Owing to certain similarities, treatment philosophies applicable to musculoskeletal tumour surgery may be applied in the management of chronic osteomyelitis. This novel approach not only reinforces certain important treatment principles, but may also allow for improved patient selection as surgical margins may be customised according to relevant host factors. When distilled to its most elementary level, management is based on a choice between either a palliative or curative approach. Unfortunately there are currently no objective criteria to guide selection of the most appropriate treatment pathway. The pre-operative diagnostic work-up should be tailored according to the relevant objective, ...

Chronicnon-bacterial osteomyelitis (CNO) is an inflammatory bone disorder of yet unknown origin. The clinical spectrum ranges from relatively benign, self-limiting, mono-focal symptoms to destructive, multi-focal involvement (known as chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis, CRMO). Secondary to the absence of high-titer autoantibodies and autoreactive T lymphocytes, CNO was classified as an autoinflammatory disorder. The diagnosis is based on the clinical picture, the exclusion of differential diagnoses (including infections and malignancies), and radiographic findings. Treatment options are empiric, including NSAIDs as first line therapy, and steroids, bisphosphonates, or biologicals in more treatment resistant cases.. To date, the etiopathology of CNO remains to be elucidated. Linkage analyses point to a susceptibility locus on chromosome 18q. However, conclusive evidence is lacking. A rare syndromal form of CNO, referred to as Majeed syndrome, has been linked to mutations in the LPIN2 gene ...
Chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO) is an uncommon cause of chronic inflammatory bone pain in children that can be disabling. Often, this diagnosis is considered only after a prolonged workup, leading to frustration for families and unnecessary interventions for patients. Here we describe three cases of CRMO to increase awareness of how it may present. The first patient had a typical presentation of focal bone pain (knee), for which she underwent bone scan (hint of >1 lesion), had a bone biopsy to rule out malignancy, received empiric antibiotics for presumed infection, and finally had whole-body imaging confirming CRMO when symptoms persisted. The second patient had a similar workup, but initially presented with clavicular pain. This location should raise suspicion for CRMO, as it is an uncommon location for infectious osteomyelitis. The third patient presented with delayed growth and right hip pain, and simultaneously developed palmoplantar pustulosis. These secondary findings can also

If your kids are like most, theyre probably pretty active and not always as careful as they should be. Minor scrapes and bruises that develop on their arms and legs will usually heal on their own - but deeper wounds that are left untreated can become infected, and lead to a bone infection. In medical terms, thats called osteomyelitis.. Osteomyelitis is most commonly caused by the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus, but other bacteria can cause it, too. Germs usually enter the bodys tissues through an open wound (often a broken bone that breaks the skin), but can also travel to a bone through the bloodstream from another infected area in the body (this is called hematogenous osteomyelitis).. A bone also can become infected when the blood supply to that area is disrupted, such as in older people with atherosclerosis (a narrowing of the blood vessels) or in those with diabetes. Atherosclerosis or diabetes-related bone infections usually occur in the toes or other bones in the feet. Osteomyelitis ...
Objective. Pyogenic vertebral osteomyelitis (PVO) are frequently misdiagnosed and patients often receive anti-inflammatory drugs for their back pain. We studied the impact of these medications. Methods. We performed a prospective study enrolling patients with PVO and categorized them depending on their drugs intake. Then, we compared diagnosis delay, clinical presentation at hospitalization, incidence of complications, and cure rate. Results. In total, 79 patients were included. Multivariate analysis found no correlation between anti-inflammatory drug intake and diagnosis delay, clinical presentation, complications, or outcome. Conclusion. Anti-inflammatory drugs intake does not affect diagnostic delay, severity at diagnosis, or complications of PVO.

Hypertrophic Osteodystrophy (HOD) is a developmental autoinflammatory disease affecting young, rapidly growing dogs. Affected dogs exhibit clinical signs of fever, anorexia, lethargy and lameness. A similar disease called chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO) is seen in children. The cause for HOD remains unknown, but since specific breeds are predisposed, an inherited etiology is probable. The Weimaraner breed is susceptible to HOD, and closely related dogs such as full-siblings can be affected. Additional predisposed breeds are the Irish Setter, Great Dane, German Shepherd Dog, German Shorthaired Pointer, Labrador Retriever, Great Pyrenees, and Boxer. Currently, dog breeders do not have genetic resources available to select against HOD in their lines. Dr. Bannasch and her team hypothesize that exonic non-synonymous mutations associated with HOD in dogs can be identified by comparing whole-genome sequence reads from HOD cases and controls. She will investigate exonic non-synonymous

Treatment. The three patients with acute osteomyelitis underwent early incision and drainage (Table I). One had proximal radial involvement and required fasciotomy of the forearm for early compartment syndrome. He required skin grafting and healed. The remaining two had distal radial involvement and pus was found deep to the pronator quadratus muscle at surgical exploration. Both patients improved.. Reviewing the nine patients with chronic osteomyelitis, one child with multifocal bone involvement in infancy had decreased growth of the radial shaft resulting in 4 cm shortening of the forearm and radial deviation of the wrist. Regarding the remaining eight patients, two children had established bone defects, and six underwent surgery with debridement of granulation tissue, sequestrectomy and curettage of the bone ends. Three had insertion of antibiotic beads in the bone defect following sequestrectomy.. Reconstruction was performed when the infection healed.. Two patients with gap defects ,2 cm ...
Ertapenem is a once-daily broad spectrum carbapenem that is increasingly used to treat polymicrobial osteomyelitis due to diabetic foot and traumatic wound infections. However, limited data exists on ertapenem use for osteomyelitis. This study aimed to characterize outcomes and adverse effects with empiric use of ertapenem for osteomyelitis. A total of 112 patients presenting to Duke, Durham Regional or Durham VA Medical Centers with a suspected diagnosis of osteomyelitis and ertapenem use from 11/2001 to 8/2009 were screened, and 12 subjects met inclusion criteria for the study. Mean age was 60 ± 16 years, 68% were female, 75% were Caucasian, and the most common comorbidities included diabetes (58%), peripheral vascular disease (42%), and history of tobacco use (75%).

A case of thoracic vertebral osteomyelitis due to Salmonella enteritis (SE) in an immunocompetent patient is reported. This is the third case in the literature of SE thoracic vertebral osteomyelitis, but the first one with this multi-foci presentation and finally fatal outcome due to meningoencephalitis. Further data that makes our case unique are the absence of fever (body temperature: 37.4°C) and gastrointestinal disorders. Case Report: A 57-year-old male patient initially presented with thoracic pain, dyspnea, and knee pain. Examinations revealed a large pleural effusion and septic arthritis. Blood and all these sides (vertebrae, pleural fluid, and joint fluid) cultures revealed SE. The infection was successfully treated with three surgical interventions, plus antibiotic administration. First, a chest tube was inserted and at the same time, we took cultures and specimens from the infected sites. Subsequently, bone debridement and spine fusion were performed, and finally, knee fusion was held with an
Chronic suppurative osteomyelitis is generally regarded as a secondary, chronic osteomyelitis characterized by a defensive response that leads to production of granulation tissue, which subsequently forms dense scar tissue in an attempt to wall off the infected area; the encircled dead space acts as a reservoir for bacteria, and antibiotic medications have great difficulty reaching the site ...
This case demonstrates that successful treatment of M. ulcerans osteomyelitis and septic arthritis can be achieved with limited surgical debridement and 6 months of oral rifampicin and ciprofloxacin; this is, to the best of the authors knowledge, the first time that this has been reported. Our patients osteomyelitis progressed radiologically despite initial surgical debridement, but then resolved following the commencement of rifampicin and ciprofloxacin without further surgery, and with no local or distal recurrences in the 36-month follow-up period. Thus, we believe that this combination of antibiotics resulted in cure of the osteomyelitis in our case, and prevented the development of further metachronous M. ulcerans lesions. This raises the possibility that this simple and well-tolerated oral combination has the potential to reduce significantly the morbidity and disability that results worldwide in the surgical treatment of M. ulcerans osteomyelitis, and warrants further study.. M. ...
antibiotics and supportive care were continued. The patient recovered and was discharged 20 days later.. Intraosseous gas is a sign of emphysematous osteomyelitis caused by gas-forming organisms. Important differential diagnoses include degenerative diseases, trauma (including iatrogenic), or less commonly, neoplasm. However, when a patient with MM presents with bone lesions and concomitant intraosseous gas, the lesion could be misinterpreted as a destructive manifestation of MM without suspicion of infection.. These CT findings call attention to various bony manifestations of MM. Our findings also raise concern about osteomyelitis and/or emphysematous osteomyelitis, especially in a patient with confirmed bacteremia and bony manifestations. ...
Study assessed the effects of weather trends on the occurrence and severity of acute hematogenous osteomyelitis in affected children.
PURPOSE: The role of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the diagnosis of osteomyelitis in foot infections in diabetics was investigated. The accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity of MRI, plain radiography, and nuclear scanning were determined for diagnosing osteomyelitis, and a cost comparison was made. METHODS: Twenty-seven patients with diabetic foot infections were studied prospectively. All patients underwent MRI and plain radiography. Twenty-two patients had technetium bone scans, and 19 patients had Indium scans. Nineteen patients had all four tests performed. Patients with obvious gangrene or a fetid foot were excluded. RESULTS: The diagnosis of osteomyelitis was established by pathologic specimen (n = 18), bone culture (n = 3), or successful response to medical management (n = 6). Osteomyelitis was confirmed in nine of the pathologic specimens. The diagnostic sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy for MRI was 88%, 100%, and 95%, respectively, for plain radiography it was 22%, 94%, and 70%,
Abstract Introduction: Fungal osteomyelitis is an uncommon diseases and generally present in an indolent fashion. Isolated bone affection due to fungi are rare and we present one such case with fungal osteomyelitis of terminal phalanx of second toe. Case Report: We present a rare case of fungal osteomyelitis of right second toe in a 30 year old Indian female who presented with swelling of 8 months duration. Diagnosis was based on the histo-pathological report and culture showing Aspergillus growth. The patient was treated with surgical debridement and amphotericin-B was given for 6 weeks after debridement. There was no recurrence one year post surgery. Conclusion: Isolated Aspergillus osteomyelitis of the bone are very rare and mostly seen in immunocompromised patients and larger bones like spine, femur and tibia. Treatment with wound debridement and subsequently followed up with a course of Amphotericin-B for 6 weeks provided good results. There was no recurrence noted at 1 year follow up. Fungi should
Nocardiosis is an unusual infection in companion animals characterized by suppurative to pyogranulomatous lesions, localized or disseminated. Cutaneous-subcutaneous, pulmonary and systemic signs are observed in feline nocardiosis. However, osteomyelitis is a rare clinical manifestation in cats. Nocardia cyriacigeorgica (formerly N. asteroides sensu stricto), Nocardia brasiliensis, Nocardia otitidiscaviarum, and Nocardia nova are the most common pathogenic species identified in cats, based on recent molecular classification (16S rRNA gene). The present report is, to our knowledge, the first case of mandibular osteomyelitis in a cat caused by Nocardia africana, diagnosed based upon a combination of methods, including molecular techniques. A one-year-old non-neutered female cat, raised in a rural area, was admitted to the Companion Animal Hospital-PUCPR, São José dos Pinhais, State of Paraná, Brazil, with a history a progressive facial lesion, difficulty apprehending food, loss of appetite, apathy and
A two-stage surgical strategy (debridement-negative pressure therapy (NPT) and flap coverage) with prolonged antimicrobial therapy is usually proposed in pressure ulcer-related pelvic osteomyelitis but has not been widely evaluated. Adult patients with pressure ulcer-related pelvic osteomyelitis treated by a two-stage surgical strategy were included in a retrospective cohort study. Determinants of superinfection (i.e., additional microbiological findings at reconstruction) and treatment failure were assessed using binary logistic regression and Kaplan-Meier curve analysis. Sixty-four pressure ulcer-related pelvic osteomyelitis in 61 patients (age, 47 (IQR, 36-63)) were included. Osteomyelitis was mostly polymicrobial (73%), with a predominance of S. aureus (47%), Enterobacteriaceae spp. (44%) and anaerobes (44%). Flap coverage was performed after 7 (IQR, 5-10) weeks of NPT, with 43 (68%) positive bone samples among which 39 (91%) were superinfections, associated with a high ASA score (OR, 5.8; p = 0.022
Osteomyelitis is a bacterial infection of bone tissue. Most often, it occurs secondarily from an adjacent soft tissue (skin) site that is infected. It may also be caused by trauma (direct penetration) to a bone, with secondary bacterial contamination. Bone mass may become infected in children secondarily to bacteria growing in the bloodstream (sepsis). Regardless of the cause, osteomyelitis continues to be a serious infection, requiring aggressive, relatively long-term, antibiotic therapy. Common symptoms include: point tenderness to touch over the infected bone; swelling and redness to the skin overlying the site; fever, and chills, are common. Children with lower extremity osteomyelitis may exhibit a limp as the first sign of this problem.. Evaluation will include careful physical examination of the extremity in question. Any history of injury or skin penetration will be important. Bone x-rays will typically not show changes associated with osteomyelitis until the infection has been present ...
Osteomyelitis in newborn infants is a rare infection. Lower extremity joints are commonly affected. Most of the cases have a haematogenous spread. Aerobes are the common group of organism involved, of which Staphylococcus aureus is the commonest. Klebsiella osteomyelitis has been reported as a cause of Osteomyelitis. However, to the best of our knowledge, this is the first case report of Klebsiella pneumoniae associated osteomyelitis in an infant from Pakistan.
There has been a dramatic increase in musculoskeletal infections (MSI) in children in the last twenty years. Copley recognized this as a problem in North Texas in 2002 and says the climate in this region plays some role in the increased incidence here.
The Beit CURE (BC) classification is a radiographic classification used in childhood chronic haematogenous osteomyelitis. The aim of this study is to assess correlation between this classification and the type and extent of treatment required. We present a retrospective series of 145 cases of childhood chronic haematogenous osteomyelitis classified using the BC classification. Variables measured include age, sex, bone involved, number of admissions, length of stay, type/number of operations and microbiology. The most commonly affected bone was the tibia (46 %), followed by femur (26 %) and humerus (10 %). Bone defects were most common in the tibia. Staphylococcus aureus was the most commonly isolated organism. Type B, sequestrum type, was the most common (88 %), followed by type C, sclerotic type, (7 %) and type A, Brodies abscess (5 %). Types A and B1 had the shortest length of hospitalisation (11 days), type B4 had the longest (87 days). Types A and B1 had the fewest infection control operations.

Acute hematogenous bone and joint infections, septic arthritis, and osteomyelitis with or without adjacent septic arthritis, are rare among children in a standard Western setting, but still potentially devastating diseases, as even deaths have been reported recently. Foir this reason, and in part due to historical reasons, the treatment has comprised of months-long courses of antibiotics, started intravenously for at least a week, and aggressive surgery. Recent prospective and randomized trials have shown that a 2-4-day parenteral course, completed orally to a total duration of 10-14 days for septic arthritis and of 3 weeks for osteomyelitis, heals the great majority of cases, provided large-enough doses of a well-absorbing antibiotic, and a four-times-daily (qid) regimen is used. Staphylococcus aureus - the most common causative agent in osteoarticular infections - is the primary target for treatment. For methicillin-susceptible strains, first-generation cephalosporins, clindamycin, and ...

  • Whether an orthopaedic surgeon who is treating chronic osteomyelitis or a maxillofacial surgeon who is treating osteonecrosis of the jaw, from whom most of the fluorescence-guided resection literature has developed, one of the common themes is adequate resection of nonviable infected bone. (
  • Given the compelling evidence for fluorescence-guided resection, the senior author has begun preoperatively to administer doxycycline to her patients prior to debridement of chronic osteomyelitis. (
  • When bone infection persists for months, the resulting infection is referred to as chronic osteomyelitis and may be polymicrobial. (
  • Please see our CRMO/CNO algorithm for guidance on when referral is appropriate and the tests needed to refer patients with chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO)/chronic nonbacterial osteomyelitis (CNO). (

  • The use of local antibiotics from a biodegradable implant for chronic osteomyelitis is an attractive alternative. (
  • Despite the advances in prophylaxis against infection, chronic osteomyelitis after joint replacement surgery and internal fixation of fractures remains a considerable problem [ 1 - 3 ]. (
  • The treatment of chronic osteomyelitis includes debridement of the dead infected tissue, obliteration of dead space, osseous repair, adequate soft tissue coverage, and systemic antibiotics. (
