Primary subacute talus osteomyelitis caused by Pasteurella canis: literature review and case report

  • Microbiology (medical)
  • Microbiology

In this review, we would like to demonstrate the case of a 6-year-old girl who presented with progressive ankle pain and eventual inability to weight bear. She was shown to have primary acute osteomyelitis of the talus caused by Pasteurella canis , a commensal organism usually found in the oropharynx of dogs, despite the absence of any history of a dog bite or other zoonotic risk factors. We characterise the symptoms, signs, radiographic appearances and result of both the medical and surgical management, including a review of the literature. This review aims to increase awareness of this rare pathology and help guide other clinicians in accurately diagnosing and managing the condition.
