Abstract

Brodie's abscess is a form of subacute osteomyelitis which is defined by a particular constellation of clinical, radiological and pathological features. Its occurrence in infants is extremely rare. This case documents just such an occurrence. To the authors' knowledge, the pathogen Haemophilus influenzae has been previously recognized as a cause of Brodie's abscess in particular or subacute osteomyelitis in general. The clinical prsentation and diagnostic pitfalls which may be encountered in this age group are discussed.
