Abstract

Introduction. - Pubic osteomyelitis has been described in three situations: children in whom Staphylococcus aureus is the preeminent pathogen; elderly patients who have undergone genitourinary procedures, and parenteral drugabusers. In contrast, pubic osteomyelitis in athletes has been described less often. We report three cases of acute staphylococcal pubic osteomyelitis in young athletic men and present a review of the literature. Exegesis. - The clinical presentation in each case was acute groin, hip, or perineal pain; fever; inability to bear weight; and pubic symphysis tenderness. The diagnosis was established by blood culture and radiologic changes. Conclusions. - Staphylococcus aureus pubic osteomyelitis should be suspected in athletes who have febrile hip or groin pain. The pathogenesis of thisdisease is thought to involve preexisting trauma or athletic injury and subsequent seeding of this area during transient bacteremia. Prolonged antimicrobial therapy is required far the cure, and debridement with curettage may be necessary if patients have persistent infection or sequestra.
