Caption

Clinical photograph of an elderly person's lower leg showing an ulcer due to osteomyelitis, a bacterial infection of the bone marrow. Acute osteomyelitis may occur in persons of any age through damage & exposure of the bone marrow following a compound fracture. It may also occur in infants caused by pyogenic (pus-forming) bacteria (usually Staphylococcus aureus), where the bacteria enter the bone marrow cavity via the bloodstream. The disease may become chronic unless promptly treated with high-doses of antibiotics: surgery may be necessary to drain the infected tissue.
