Hematogenous osteomyelitis in infants and children in the Northwestern region of Namibia.
We reviewed the records of fifty-five children, including eleven infants (three of whom were neonates), who had at least one skeletal manifestation of hematogenous osteomyelitis.
Forty-two of the patients were boys and thirteen were girls.
The patients were classified into three groups: those who had early acute, those who had late acute, and those who had cbronic osteomyelitis.
This classification system was based on clinical and radiograpbic criteria.
Seven patients bad early acute osteomyelitis; eighteen, late acute osteomyelitis; and thirty, chronic osteomyelitis.
The bones most often affected were the tibia (twenty-two patients) and the femur (nineteen patients).
