Gonococcal OsteomyelitisCase Report and Review of the Literature

Arch Intern Med. 1991;151(1):177-179. doi:10.1001/archinte.1991.00400010167027

We report the 11th case of gonococcal osteomyelitis in the postantibiotic era. This case demonstrates the classic presentation of osteomyelitis associated with gonorrhea, a subacute illness with minimal systemic symptoms. In addition, we present radiologic evidence of the pathogenesis of this unusual osteomyelitis from a contiguous joint infection.
