Osteomyelitis is a bone infection in which generally the legs, arms and the spine may get affected. The infection is mostly caused by bacteria called Staphylococcus aureus. The symptoms of the condition may include fever with chills, irritability and lethargy in children, pain in the affected area along with swelling and redness.
HOW IS OSTEOMYELITIS DIAGNOSED?
Diagnosis is done by an orthopaedic who would examine the bones and also do a scan or X-ray to check for the infection inside the bones. Blood test and biopsy is done too.
HOW IS OSTEOMYELITIS TREATED?
The treatment of this condition is done with the help of surgery that will drain the area that has been affected. Also, this surgery can restore better blood flow to the affected bone. Surgery may also be used to remove any foreign objects that may be causing the infection.
DID YOU KNOW?
A bone biopsy may also be required for diagnosis of the condition.
