Osteomyelitis and secondary septic arthritis caused by Sphingomonas paucimobilis

, : Osteomyelitis and secondary septic arthritis caused by Sphingomonas paucimobilis. Infection 33(2): 93-95

We describe a case of osteomyelitis and secondary septic arthritis caused by Sphingomonas paucimobilis in an immunosupressed adolescent which did not present typically, leading to a delay in diagnosis. This case highlights the need to thoroughly investigate musculoskeletal pain in the immunocompromised patient in order to exclude an infection as a cause.

Ascorbate-dependent peroxidase activity was first reported in 1979 (Groden and Beck, 1979; Kelly and Latzko, 1979) and ascorbate peroxidase (APX) is, therefore, a relative newcomer to the peroxidase field--horseradish (HRP) and cytochrome c (CcP)...
