Organizing Pneumonia in an Adult With Chronic Recurrent Noninfectious Osteomyelitis: A Case Report and Literature Review
Chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO) is an idiopathic inflammatory disorder primarily of children and adolescents that is characterized by multifocal nonpyogenic relapsing and remitting inflammatory bone lesions. Pulmonary abnormalities are rarely associated with CRMO, with two reported cases of consolidation on chest CT that occurred in children. We present a case of organizing pneumonia in an adult patient with CRMO. The concurrent worsening of pulmonary and bone disease suggests that CRMO may be a rare cause of organizing pneumonia.
