Based on the experience with other forms of cryptococcosis and using the principles of bacterial osteomyelitis
management, both surgical debridement and prolonged combined antifungal therapy seems to be reasonable.
Because a mandibular lesion in SAPHO syndrome is often misdiagnosed as bacterial osteomyelitis
, some affected patients received long-term antibiotic therapy combined with surgical procedures and it is rare that the mandibular lesion triggers the diagnosis of SAPHO syndrome [3, 4].
: Findings on plain radiography, CT, MR and Scintigraphy.
The most common differential diagnosis at the time of presentation is chronic bacterial osteomyelitis
Acute bacterial osteomyelitis
(OM) is bone and bone marrow infection that is still associated with significant disability and poor clinical outcome .
Radiologists, surgeons, nuclear medicine physicians, and other physicians from Europe, South America, Israel, and the US cover the epidemiology of infections; clinical aspects of bacterial osteomyelitis
; and the radiological imaging and nuclear medicine imaging of osteomyelitis, spine infections, spondylodiscitis, soft tissue infections, abdominal infections and inflammatory disease, vascular graft infection, tuberculosis and HIV, and fever of unknown origin.
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 The laboratory findings suggest an inflammatory process with evidence of elevated ESR, C-reactive protein and alkaline phosphatase in approximately two-thirds of cases.
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.
Differential diagnosis includes chronic bacterial osteomyelitis
, tuberculosis, Buruli ulcer, other deep fungal infections such as blastomycosis or coccidomycosis and leishmaniasis, yaws and syphilis, and soft-tissue sarcoma.
Oral antibiotic therapy in the adult bacterial osteomyelitis
: results after two years of follow-up.
