Our patient had no history of immune deficiency disorders, sickle cell anemia, IV drug abuse, diabetes mellitus or subacute bacterial endocarditis, which all increase the risk of multifocal bacterial osteomyelitis
The most common differential diagnosis at the time of presentation is chronic bacterial osteomyelitis
Differential diagnoses for chronic recurrent multi-focal osteomyelitis DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSES FOR CRMO * Bacterial Osteomyelitis * Bone Bruise * Fracture * Osteonecrosis * Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis * Osteosarcoma * Ewing's Sarcoma * Osteoblastoma * Osteoid Osteoma * Leukemia * Lymphoma * Neuroblastoma
As articulated in this case, CRMO can resemble bacterial osteomyelitis which results in treatment with anti-microbial therapy.
It is supposed that the severe bacterial osteomyelitis
induced deviation of some bones, thereby leading to deviation of the beak.
in adults: Evolving considerations in diagnosis and treatment.
in major sickling haemoglobinopathies: Geographical difference in pathogen pattern.
1, 2) Typical bacterial osteomyelitis
may coexist with or mimic mycetoma.
Twenty three (51%) patients were initially misdiagnosed as having bacterial osteomyelitis
1),(2),(3),(4),(5),(10) The differential diagnosis includes a variety of entities, such as trauma, fracture, bacterial osteomyelitis
, and neoplasm.
This study will examine patients suffering from bacterial osteomyelitis
, a chronic or acute infection of the bone.
