Osteomyelitis

Osteomyelitis


Osteomyelitis
  • Salmonella osteomyelitis is common in Sickle cell disease
  • Commonest site of bone involvement in hematogenous osteomyelitis Metaphysis
  • Microorganism which causes pyogenic osteomyelitis is  Staphylococcus aureus
  • Sequestrum is a piece of dead bone seen in osteomyelitis 
  • In osteomyelitis Involvement is dense sclerotic bone overlying a sequestrum
  • Tubercular osteomyelitis is  a type of secondary osteomyelitis
  • Sequestrum is uncommon in  tubercular osteomyelitis
  • Inflammation is minimal in  tubercular osteomyelitis
  • The most common site of infection in osteomyelitis in a 10 year old child is rapidly growing and highly vascular metaphysis of growing bones
  • The apparent slowing or sludging of blood flow, as the vessels make sharp angles at the distal metaphysis, predisposes the vessels to thrombosis and the bone itself to localized necrosis and bacterial seeding making metaphysis most common site of infection in osteomyelitis
  • Pott’s puffy tumor , a complication of frontal sinusitis,  is due to osteomyelitis of frontal bone
  • Garre’s osteomyelitis commonly involve Jaw bone
  • Acute osteomyelitis can best be distinguished from soft tissue infection by MRI
  • Secondary amyloidosis occurs in  Chronic osteomyelitis
  • Periosteal reaction in a case of acute osteomyelitis can be seen earliest at 10 days
  • Commonest cause of hematogenous osteomyelitis Staph. aureus
  • Earliest radiological change to appear in case of acute osteomyelitis is Loss of plane between soft tissue and muscle
  • Chronic discharging sinus with bone particle is seen in Chronic osteomyelitis
  • Ewings sarcoma clinically mimics Osteomyelitis
  • Reactive new bone formation occurs in chronic Osteomyelitis
  • Cloaca is an opening in involucrum seen in chronic Osteomyelitis
  • Brodie’s abscess is  present in chronic Osteomyelitis
