Refractory osteomyelitis is a recurrent case of osteomyelitis.
Osteomyelitis is a fancy word for bone infection and refractory osteomyelitis can become a problem if untreated.
As we discussed on our osteomyelitis page, this is a bone infection caused by bacteria or other germs and can originate in or around a bone or travel to a bone through the bloodstream. Bone infections are most often caused by staphylococcus bacteria, but they can also be caused by a fungus or other germs.
In the case of refractory osteomyelitis, the infection keeps coming back, but it can be successfully treated at Encompass HealthCare and Wound Medicine.
