A rare condition underlying childhood back pain: chronic nonbacterial osteomyelitis
Orv Hetil. 2024 Apr 14;165(15):595-600. doi: 10.1556/650.2024.33021. Print 2024 Apr 14.ABSTRACTA gerincfájdalom hátterében a gyakoribb benignus kórképek mellett malignus elváltozások és súlyos gyulladással jellemezhető kórképek is előfordulhatnak. A kivizsgálás során a részletes laboratóriumi vizsgálatok mellett a képalkotó diagnosztikának kiemelkedő jelentősége van. A csontfájdalom hátterében ritkán a krónikus nem bakteriális osteomyelitis is állhat. A szerzők egy 9 éves leánygyermek esetét mutatják be, aki több hónapja fennálló, progrediáló háti gerincfájdalommal jelentkezett...

Non ‑contact locking plate: A useful alternative to external fixation in second‑stage treatment of post‑traumatic tibial osteomyelitis
In conclusion, the results of the present study demonstrate that the non-contact locking plate technique provided stable fixation without any contact between the implant and bone tissues. Therefore, this technique may be viable for use during the reconstruction stage of post-traumatic tibial osteomyelitis.PMID:38596657 | PMC:PMC11002822 | DOI:10.3892/etm.2024.12518 (Source: Experimental and Therapeutic Medicine)

Primary Mandibular Tuberculous Osteomyelitis Mimicking Ameloblastoma: A Case Report and Literature Review of Mandibular Tuberculous Osteomyelitis
Arch Plast Surg. 2024 Feb 29;51(2):187-195. doi: 10.1055/a-2217-8784. eCollection 2024 Mar.ABSTRACTPrimary tuberculous osteomyelitis involving the mandible represents less than 2% of skeletal locations. In this paper, we report a case of mandibular tuberculosis (TB) detected after histopathological analysis of the surgically resected specimen during surgical management of a suspected case of ameloblastoma. A 14-year-old male patient presented to us with history of right-sided chin swelling. The clinical examination revealed a swelling, involving right body and parasymphysis of mandible, measuring approximately 6 cm in leng...

The projected increase of vertebral osteomyelitis in Germany implies a demanding challenge for future healthcare management of aging populations
ConclusionsOur data suggest that increasing IR of VO will seriously challenge healthcare systems, particularly due to demographic change and increasing proportions of populations turning 75  years and older. With respect to globally fast aging populations, future health care policies need to address this burden by anticipating limitations in financial and human resources and developing high-level evidence-based guidelines for prevention and interdisciplinary treatment.
