Abstract

Abstract:

Osteomyelitis is a common clinical manifestation of chronic granulomatous disease, a disorder of phagocytic function. Fungal organisms account for a significant proportion of these infections. We describe the clinical presentation and subsequent destructive sacral osteomyelitis with a basidiomycetous mold, Inonotus tropicalis, in a patient with an X-linked chronic granulomatous disease.
