TORDECILLA ECHENIQUE, Y. et al. Haematogeous sternal osteomyelitis and community pneumonia in a meticilin-susceptible Staphilococcus aureus sepsis. An. Med. Interna (Madrid) [online]. 2005, vol.22, n.4, pp.41-43. ISSN 0212-7199.
We report here a case of primary haematogenous osteomyelitis diagnosed in a young mild asthmatic male with immunocompetence. A hard job worked as trigger of the septic picture from a forunculosis lesion located on the abdominal wall. Meticilin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus was isolated from blood cultures and from sternal aspiration liquid. Two months after clinical onset Ig G 4 elevation was achieved at the immunodeficiency screening. Stafilococycal lung CT images accompanied to the septic course. Intravenous cloxacilin and gentamycin treatment followed by oral rifampicin and levofloxacin achieved a total recovery.
