UNUSUAL PRESENTATION OF OSTEOMYELITIS
Keywords:Osteomyelitis, unusual, children
Septic osteomyelitis in children is sometimes challenging for physicians to diagnose. The diagnosis often is unclear at the initial evaluation. The initial presentation may be nonspecific. Children older than 3 months of age with hematogenous osteomyelitis usually present acutely with fever, constitutional symptoms (eg, irritability, decreased appetite or activity). Close monitoring of the clinical course is essential to establishing the diagnosis.
