Candida albicans osteomyelitis in a vertebral body previously infected with Serratia marcescens


, : Candida albicans osteomyelitis in a vertebral body previously infected with Serratia marcescens. Spine 15(12): 1362-1363

A case is reported in a 66-yr-old man with polymyalgia rheumatica who developed osteomyelitis due to C. albicans. Only 5 months previously the patient had been treated with antibiotics for biopsy proven S. marcescens osteomyelitis in the same vertebral body. The patient underwent anterior debridement of the T6 vertebral body and intraoperative cultures grew C. albicans. Subsequently, the tip of his central venous catheter grew C. albicans and use of the central line was discontinued.
