Title

Recurrent osteomyelitis caused by infection with different bacterial strains without obvious source of reinfection

Authors
Published in Journal of Clinical Microbiology. 2006, vol. 44, no. 3, p. 1194-1196
Abstract Recurrence of osteomyelitis by the same bacterial strain is well known. We report three patients with a second episode of osteomyelitis at the same site caused by different strains of bacteria from the original. Formerly infected and altered bone surface might present a region of diminished resistance for a new infection.
