3 overview Normally, bone and joint are sterile. Infection >>Rare. Significant >> disability,death.


5 Osteomyelitis Osteomyelitis is infection in the bone. Infants,children,and adults. In children >>at the ends of the long bones of the arms and legs, affecting the hips, knees, shoulders, and wrists. In adults >>bones of the spine (vertebrae) or in the pelvis.

6 Risk factors Diabetes Hemodialysis Injected drug use Poor blood supply Recent trauma Surgery The elderly

7 Symptoms Bone pain Fever malaise Local swelling, redness, and warmth Other symptoms may occur : Chills Excessive sweating Low back pain Swelling of the ankles, feet, and legs

8 Classification Bacterial: – Acute osteomyelitis (subacute) hematogenous non- hematogenous – Chronic osteomyelitis Nonspecific specific (TB, syphilitic)

9 Non- Bacterial – Viral osteomyelitis – Fungi – Radiation osteomyelitis

10 Acute hematogenous osteomyelitis l mostly children l history of trauma l Long bone >> most common l In children >> metaphysis l Most vascular part l Blood flow slow l Most part subject to trauma l In adult >> epiphysis

11 The organisms l Gram +ve l Staphylococus aureus (80-90%) l Strep. pyogen l Strep. pneumonie l Gram -ve l Haemophilus influnzae (50% < 4 y) l E.coli l Pseudomonas auroginosa, l Proteus mirabilis

12 Source Of Infection l Infected umbilical cord in infants l Infection ( respiratory, intestinal, urinary, oral, boils, tonsilitis, skin abrasions)>> bacteramia l Traumatic implantation

13 Pathology l Minor trauma to adjacent joint, suppuration l starts at metaphysis l Subperiosteal abscess l Bone necrosis l new bone formation“ ivolucrum” l Channels through soft tissue “sinuses” l Sinuses appear thick-walled holes “cloacae” l Death of bony segment “sequestrum”


15 Complication Pathological fracture. Direct spread of infection  arthritis,myositis Blood spread  septicaemia, pyaemia Chronic suppurrative osteomyelitis.

16 Acute non- hematogenous osteomyelitis Causes – Infection of fractured bone – Infection of skull bone by direct spread Pathologhy – Resemble hematogenous except no Subperiosteal abscess

17 Subacute Osteomyelitis Brodie's abscess, a chronic abscess of bone surrounded by dense fibrous tissue and sclerotic bone. The lesion usually is within the metaphysis, but can occur anywhere.

18 Chronic OM May following acute OM. Sclerosing osteomyelytitis of Garre – a chronic form involving the long bones, especially the tibia and femur, marked by a diffuse inflammatory reaction, increased density and spindle-shaped sclerotic thickening of the cortex, and an absence of suppuration. – Develop in the jaw and characterized by extensive new bone formation.

19 Complication Secondary amyloidosis Squamous cell carcinoma

20 According to the pathogenesis l Haematogenous osteomyelitis. l Contagious spread osteomyelitis. l Peripheral vascular disease. l Prostheses osteomyelitis.

21 Contagious spread osteomyelitis Direct spread of bacteria from infection in adjacent tissues. – Long bone (most common) – Cranial vault >> head injury. – Sacrum >> decubitus ulceration. – Sternum >> cardiothoracic surgery. Gram –ve bacilli. Anaerobic bacteria.

22 Peripheral vascular disease. Often affects the toes. Streptcocci and anaerobic bacteria. Particularly common in diabetics.

23 Prostheses osteomyelitis Infections following artificial joint replacement. Caused by – Perioperative contamination. – Haematogenous spread occurs in the posoperative period. The causal organisms >> bacteria – Coagulase-negative staphylcocci – Streptococci – corynebacteria

24 Major pathogen Neonates : – E. coli or Bacteroides spp. Infants – Haemophilus influenzae (< of 4 years ) Later – S.aureus – Streptococcus pyogenes – Streptococcus pneumoniae.

25 Special pathogen Salmonella- immunocomromised,sickle cell disease. Pasteurella multocida M.tuberculosis Fungi- IV drugs abusers or immunosuppression

26 Diagnosis l History and clinical examination Blood cultures Bone biopsy (which is then cultured) Bone scan Bone x-ray MRI of the bone Needle aspiration of the area around affected bones

27 Treatment l supportive treatment for pain l antibiotics l surgery

28 Let’s continue with Samar

31 An acute inflammation of a joint caused by infection. Can be: – Suppurative – Nonsuppurative – Monoarticular – Polyarticular Commonly involves a single large joint such as the knee or hip.


33 Elderly Diabetes mellitus Rheumatoid arthritis Prosthetic joint Recent joint surgery Skin infection IV drug abusers

34 Blood borne infection (the most common route) Direct inoculation – entry via penetrating injury – entry via iatrogenic means Contiguous spread from osteomyelitis or soft tissue abscess. – In adults, the arteriolar anastomosis between the epiphysis and the synovium permits the spread of osteomyelitis into the joint space.

35 fever swelling warmth inability to move the limb with the infected joint severe pain in the affected joint, especially with movement


37 Caused by bacteria Virtually every bacterial organism has been reported to cause septic arthritis. Bacterial species causing septic arthritis vary with the age of the patient. – The most common species overall is S. aureus – Neisseria gonorrhea is the most common cause in sexually active adults – H. infleunza occasionally implicated in preschool children.

38 The major consequence of bacterial invasion is damage to articular cartilage. – Organism's pathological properties, such as the chondrocyte proteases of S aureus. – Host's PMNL response. cytokines and other inflammatory products  hydrolysis of essential collagen and proteoglycans.


40 S. aureus The most common cause of septic arthritis: – adults – children older than 2 years. – 80% of infected joints affected by rheumatoid arthritis – early prosthetic joint infections (PJI) – Polyarticular arthritis Mortality rate approaches 50%.

41 CNS staphylococci delayed PJI infections Streptococcal species the second most common cause – Streptococcus viridans – Streptococcus pneumoniae – group B streptococci

42 N.gonorrhoeae Gonococcal arthritis the most common pathogen (75% of cases) among younger sexually active individuals Pathogenesis is ultimately a consequence of disseminated gonococcal infection (DGI).

43 Arthritis-dermatitis syndrome includes the classic triad of – dermatitis – tenosynovitis – migratory polyarthritis. Unlike in S. aureus septic arthritis, joint destruction is rare  low mortality rate.

44 H.infleunza occasionally implicated in preschool children. Escherichia coli in the elderly, IV drug users and the seriously ill Salmonella spp. Pseudomonas aeruginosa or Serratia species cause infection of the sternoclavicular and sacroiliac joints almost exclusively in persons who abuse intravenous drugs.

45 Aeromonas  Persons with leukemia are predisposed. Pasteurella multocida, Capnocytophaga species (dog and cat bites) Brucella spp.  lumbosacral spine involvement.

46 Acid fast Mycobacteria are a rare cause of septic arthritis. Anaerobes usually a consequence of trauma or abdominal infection. 5% of cases Fusobacterium nucleatum Eikenella corrodens Streptococcal species (human bites)

47 Polymicrobial joint infections 5-10% of cases

48 Viruses Fungi Borrelia burgdorferi

49 Viral infections may cause: – direct invasion  rubella virus – production of antigen/antibody complexes. hepatitis B, parvovirus B19 lymphocytic choriomeningitis viruses

50 Hepatitis viruses Hepatitis A Hepatitis B – Onset in the prodromic stage. – Usually resolves as jaundice develops – Chronic arthritis possible in patients with chronic hepatitis B infection Hepatitis C

51 Parvovirus B19 Occurs in adults esp. women Mainly involves the small joints of the hands and feet bilaterally. Rubella (natural infection and vaccine related) – Onset possible before, during, or after the appearance of the rash – Mild, short lived and without major impairment of joint function.

52 HIV 2 types occur, both with noninflammatory sterile joint fluid Mumps Occurs in adult men 2 weeks after the presentation of parotitis Mild, short lived and without impairment of joint function.

53 Candida albicans Sporothrix schenckii Coccidioides immitis, Histoplasma species, and Blastomyces species

54 Spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi. – Lyme arthritis – Develops in 60%-80% of untreated patients. – The dominant feature of late disease (stage 3) – may produce nonsuppurative joint infection – Borrelia antigens cross react with proteins in the joints

55 Acute inflammation of the joints that follows infection with various bacteria, but the joints are sterile. i.e. inflammation is a “reaction” to the presence of bacterial antigen elsewhere in the body. Usually oligoarticular and asymmetric. Bacterial infection precedes the arthritis by a few weeks.

56 Antibiotics have no effect Anti-inflammatory agents are typically used. Increased risk in persons with HLA-B27 locus Thought to be immunologically mediated. Reiter’s syndrome icludes reactive arthritis, but affects multiple organs.

57 Reactive arthritis is associated with: – Enteric infections Salmonella spp. Shigella spp. Campylobacter spp. Yersinia spp – urethritis Chlamydia trachomatis

58 The syndrome is characterized by the triad of: – Arthritis – Conjunctivitis – Urethritis Infection by one of the following predisposes to the disease: – Salmonella spp. – Shigella spp. – Campylobacter spp. – Yersinia spp – Chlamydia trachomatis

59 Septic arthritis Joint fluid aspiration – Microscopy Absence of crystals to rule out gout & pseudogout – Culture


61 Reactive arthritis Clinically: a history of previous infection in the intestinal or genitourinaty tract. RF is usually negative. The HLA-B27 gene marker blood test can be helpful.
