Brief Summary of Lecture
While most people think of infection when they hear the term osteomyelitis, a surprising number of children have sterile osteomyelitis that is driven by innate immune system dysfunction. The bone lesions are often multifocal and are associated with inflammatory disease of the skin and intestine including Crohn disease and psoriasis. Whole body MRI is an important tool in establishing a diagnosis. Treatment is with immune modulators rather than antibiotics.
