Example text

S. aureus is the usual pathogen, but other organisms such as Escherichia coli, Proteus mirabilis and Pseudomonas aeruginosa are sometimes involved. Clinical features The patient becomes feverish and develops pain and swelling over the fracture site; the wound is inflamed and there may be a seropurulent discharge. Blood tests reveal increased CRP levels, leucocytosis and an elevated ESR; it should be remembered, though, that these inflammatory markers are non-specific and may be affected by tissue trauma.

Sequestrectomy should be performed only if a sequestrum is radiologically visible and surgically accessible. 4 Chronic osteomyelitis Chronic osteomyelitis may follow on acute. This young boy in (a) presented with draining sinuses at the site of a previous acute infection. The x-ray shows densely sclerotic bone. (b) In adults, chronic osteomyelitis is usually a sequel to open trauma or operation. In refractory or frequently recurring cases it may be possible to excise the infected and/or devitalized segment of bone and then close the gap by the Ilizarov method of ‘transporting’ a viable segment from the remaining diaphysis.

3 Rheumatoid arthritis – x-ray changes The progress of disease is well shown in this patient’s x-rays. First there was only soft-tissue swelling and periarticular osteoporosis; later juxta-articular erosions appeared (arrow); ultimately the joints became unstable and deformed. Blood investigations Normocytic, hypochromic anaemia is common and is a reflection of abnormal erythropoiesis. It may be aggravated by chronic gastrointestinal blood loss caused by non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS).
