Corynebacterium xerosis as a cause of vertebral osteomyelitis

Corynebacterium xerosis as a cause of vertebral osteomyelitis

Journal of Clinical Microbiology 27(12): 2869-2870

We report a patient who developed Corynebacterium xerosis vertebral osteomyelitis 6 months following a decompressive laminectomy. Prolonged parenteral and subsequent oral therapy for 11 months resulted in apparent cure. This is the first reported case of vertebral osteomyelitis caused by C. xerosis.
