GOMEZ RODRIGUEZ, N.  and  DURAN MUNOZ, O.. Pyomyositis, sacroiliitis and spondylodiscitis caused by Staphylococcus hominis in a immunocompetent woman. An. Med. Interna (Madrid) [online]. 2006, vol.23, n.12, pp.582-584. ISSN 0212-7199.

In abscense of risk factors, osteoarticular infections by coagulase-negative staphylococci are very infrequent. We described the case of a immunocompetent 73-year-old-woman that suffered pyomyositis, left sacroiliitis and spondylodiscitis involving the first and second thoracic vertebrae by Staphylococcus hominis. This multifocal infection occurred five-weeks after intramuscular administration of NSAI for treatment of low back pain associated with a herniated disc L4-L5. This is the first know case of a multifocal muscleskeletal infection by Staphylococcus hominis in a patient immunocompetent.

Keywords : Staphylococcus hominis; Coagulase-negative staphylococci; Pyomyositis; Infectious Spondylodiscitis; Septic sacroiliitis.
