Three children are described with osteomyelitis confirmed by roentgenogram, blood culture, bone culture, and/or histologic findings. None had an abnormal technetium scintigram. Despite the lack of falsely normal bone scans for osteomyelitis reported in the literature, our cases demonstrate the importance of instituting antibiotic therapy on the basis of clinical ...

This case of successfully managed clinical tetanus following osteomyelitis of a minimally fractured zygoma serves to remind us to consider the possibility of this diagnosis even in an apparently uncomplicated facial wound. The prodromal and clinical signs of tetanus in this case are classical. Early recognition of the disease and ...

Chronic sclerosing osteomyelitis has been frequently described in the literature but little has been recommended for the management of the resistant cases that fail to respond to conservative treatment. This report describes the long term management of a particularly aggressive case of CSO and indicates maxillary sinus disease as a ...

Roentgenographic examination of the sternum is particularly difficult and offers little clinical assistance in the early stage of acute osteomyelitis. With only a few cases of primary sternal osteomyelitis reported, there are almost no data available regarding the role of bone scan in the diagnosis of this lesion. The present ...

This is a case report on bipartite trapezium in a 12-year-old girl that presented as a painless protrusion at the base of the first metacarpal bone associated with an adduction contracture of the thumb. This seems to be the first such case to have been reported in an adolescent. The ...

The clinical and laboratory features of a case of myositis ossificans progressiva are described, and the recent literature concerning the pathogenesis and treatment of the condition is briefly reviewed.
Cartlidge I J - - 1979
A case of haematogenous osteomyelitis of the medical first metatarsal sesamoid is presented and the differential diagnosis discussed. Review of the literature suggests that the condition is rarely seen and tends to present in childhood and adolescence. This contrasts with metatarsal sesamoid osteomyelitis due to direct spread of infection, which ...

We reviewed 106 cases in which PlastiPoreTM prostheses were used for ossicular reconstruction. In all cases a piece of cartilage was interposed between the prosthesis and the tympanic membrane graft to prevent the potential problem of prosthesis extrusion. With total ossicular replacement prostheses (TORPs) 55% closed to within 10 db ...

A case of multifocal tuberculous osteomyelitis is reported. The lesions were found in the skull and ribs in a 10 year old girl with pulmonary tuberculosis and with tuberculous lymphadenitis. Complete healing was achieved under chemotherapy. Although radiologically the lesions appear "cystic", their true nature is that of granulomatous--caseous tuberculous ...

Osteomyelitis in adults due to Haemophilus influenzae is exceedingly rare. We report a case of H. influenzae type b vertebral osteomyelitis in an adult. Review of the English literature reveals one other adult patient with H. influenzae osteomyelitis, and sporadic pediatric cases. Although a variety of predisposing host resistance factors ...

We have presented eight case histories of patients with anaerobic osteomyelitis and have reviewed an additional 193 cases from the world literature. The incidence, predisposing factors, clinical localization, bacteriology, modes of presentation and natural history of anaerobic osteomyelitis are discussed. This disease entity appears to be more common than has ...

Clinical, radiological, and microbiological features of seven cases of osteomyelitis involving the orbital parts of the frontal, the maxillary, and the zygomatic bones are described. The cases were managed with antibiotics, curettage, and sequestrectomy. Problems in the correction of deformities due to circatrization are discussed. It is observed that a ...

A 35-year-old man developed salmonella pleural empyema during a three-month illness. Cultures of the empyema fluid yielded S enteritidis, serotype typhimurium. Cure was achieved by decortication and obliteration of the pleural empyema space, in combination with chloramphenicol therapy given parenterally. Review of the published reports revealed eight similar instances of ...

Infection due to opportunist mycobacteria is considered in general and that due to the fast growing mycobacteria in particular. The group is now seen to contain two facultative pathogens, M. fortuitum and M. chelonei (abscessus), all other synonyms for these two species having been shown to be invalid. Both organisms ...

During an 8-year period, 30 patients with gas-producing infections were admitted for treatment of hyperbaric oxygen. Infection was a consequence of trauma and operation in 26 cases and a complication of other diseases in 4 cases. The definitive diagnoses were clostridial myositis in 12 cases, clostridial cellulitis in 7, non-clostridial ...
