Bone infection. X-ray of the knee of a 75 year old female patient with osteomyelitis (bacterial infection of the bone) of the tibia (shin bone, bottom). This is a complication of the lower leg being amputated beneath the knee. Treatment is with antibiotics, but if they fail to clear the infection the affected bones must be removed surgically.
