Osteomyelitis with intraosseous


Intravenous literature: Henson, N.L., Payan, J.M. and Terk, M.R. (2010) Tibial subacute osteomyelitis with intraosseous abscess: an unusual complication of intraosseous infusion. Skeletal Radiology. Sep 14. [Epub ahead of print]


Intravenous (IV) access is a critical step in patient care, especially in the emergency and/or trauma setting. Recently, intraosseous (IO) infusion has re-emerged as a recommended alternative to central venous access in both the pediatric and the adult patient. We present the case of an older adult male patient several months after emergency tibial IO infusion, now with left shin pain, and the MRI and culture findings diagnostic of subacute osteomyelitis with IO abscess, an unusual complication of IO infusion.
