We present a very rare case of osteomyelitis pubis in a 75-year-old male patient due to a prostatosymphyseal fistula, which constituted a few weeks after trans-urethral resection of the prostate. The patient had a previous history of prostatic carcinoma treated by radiotherapy, which may have played a role in the development of the fistula. Computed tomography with excretory phase and magnetic resonance imaging were performed and enabled to make the final diagnosis.
