Our understanding of pediatric osteoarticular infections (OAIs) has improved significantly in recent decades.Kingella kingaeis now recognized as the most common pathogen responsible for OAIs in pediatric populations younger than 4 years old. Research has provided a better understanding of the specific types, clinical characteristics, biological repercussions, and functional outcomes of these infections. Hands and wrists are rarely infected, with few reports available in the literature. The present study aimed to examine this specific condition in a large patient cohort, explore the implications for each anatomical area using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and critically evaluate the evolution of therapeutic management.
