Osteomyelitis is an infection of bone and bone marrow, which is caused by the inoculation of a microorganism, either contiguous, directly or by hematogenous dissemination. The infection creates acute inflammation, increased intraosseous pressure, thrombosis and ischemia that result in bone necrosis. To establish the diagnosis medical history, physical examination, imaging studies and imaging, including X-rays, ultrasound, CT, MRI and nuclear medicine studies are needed.

Keywords : Osteomyelitis; Sthaphylococcus Aureus; hematogenous dissemination.
