Am J Dis Child. 1981;135(7):625-627. doi:10.1001/archpedi.1981.02130310031011

• Two cases of Pasteurella multocida osteomyelitis occurred following dog bite injuries. Difficulties exist in diagnosis and treatment. The role of P multocida and other dog mouth flora in the pathogenesis of infectious complications following dog bites is discussed. We urge a flexible antimicrobial approach based on culture results.
