Misdiagnosis of Bone Infections

In the past, osteomyelitis was considered an untreatable condition. Today, it is treatable, but must be handled with the utmost care and precision. If a bone infection is not promptly treated, it can spread to the bloodstream and other parts of the body.

In many cases, doctors mistake the symptoms of osteomyelitis with those of other diseases, such as:

  • Gout;
  • Cellulitis;
  • Diabetic ulcers;
  • Tuberculosis infection;
  • Avascular necrosis; and/or
  • Bone cancer.

The treatments for these conditions are of little help to people with osteomyelitis and unnecessary treatment can present additional medical problems.
