Abstract

Gibbus deformity is defined by the collapse of one or more vertebral bodies, which results in kyphosis and is often the consequence of infection, metabolic, or congenital irregularities in the vertebrae. In this report we present a unique case of a young male with inadequately treated MRSA bacteremia complicated by lumbar osteomyelitis with progression to severe joint destruction and a marked Gibbus deformity. © 2022 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Inc. on behalf of University of Washington.
