Example text

Subacute haematogenous osteomyelitis Once the infection has subsided, movements are encouraged; however, the patient may have to use crutches for another few weeks. Outpatient follow-up is important, to ensure that there is no recurrence of infection. Osteomyelitis may present in a relatively mild form, presumably because the organism is less virulent or the patient more resistant. The distal femur and the proximal and distal tibia are the favourite sites. The patient is usually a child or adolescent who has had pain near one of the large joints for several weeks.

Always look for other sites – multiple infection is not uncommon. During the first year of life metaphyseal infection often spreads to the epiphysis and from there into the adjacent joint. Damage to the physis may eventually lead to retarded growth and deformity at that site. In adults the commonest site of haematogenous infection is the spine. Suspicious features are backache and a mild fever, possibly following a urological procedure. It may take weeks for x-ray signs to appear, and even then the diagnosis may need to be confirmed by fine-needle aspiration and bacteriological culture.

The history is helpful and joint aspiration will resolve any doubt. Transient synovitis (irritable joint) in children causes symptoms and signs which are less acute, but there is always the fear that this is the beginning of an infection. Gout and pseudogout in adults can be indistinguishable from joint infection and cellulitis. Aspirated fluid may look turbid but the presence of urate or pyrophosphate crystals will confirm the diagnosis. 6 Suppurative arthritis – x-ray (a) In this child the left hip is subluxated and the soft tissues are swollen.
