Abstract

Candida Osteomyelitis is uncommon.1,2 It is associated with surgery, broad spectrum antibiotic use, central venous catheter insertion and immunosuppression.2 We present a rare case of candidal rib osteomyelitis presenting initially with an innocuous skin lesion managed by extensive excision and reconstruction with minimal duration of post-operative antimicrobial therapy.
