Abstract

Pelvic AHOM should be considered in children with limping and pain referred to the hip, thigh, or abdomen. Diagnosis by scintigraphy or magnetic resonance imaging followed by local puncture and microbiological workup allows for specific antibiotic treatment and results in an excellent outcome of pelvic AHOM.
