Rhodococcus equi is an unusual pathogen causing infections mostly in immunocompromised patients, particularly in those with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). It has rarely been reported to affect immunocompetent hosts, where it usually presents as an isolated extrapulmonary lesion. We report a case of osteomyelitis caused by this organism in an immunocompetent host.
