Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Osteomyelitis can be a challenging entity to treat. Because of the emergence of risk factors, including broad-spectrum antibiotics, intravenous drug abuse, immunocompromised hosts, and other factors, opportunistic pathogens have increased in prevalence in bone infections. A review of the published data revealed few reported cases of fungal osteomyelitis localized to the foot. In the present report, we describe a rare case of fungal osteomyelitis localized to the calcaneus in an elderly female patient who was successfully treated with surgical debridement and a 6-week course of oral fluconazole.
