Osteomyelitis is a microbial infection that infects the bone and associated with fungi, bacteria, and rarely mycobacteria. The microbial infection causes a destructive inflammatory process. Osteomyelitis can happen in any bone in the body. The infection starts with an acute infection, which if left untreated can progress to become a chronic disease. Factors like the causative agent, the extent of and chronicity of infection affect the clinical manifestations, prognosis, and therapy of the disease (Kumar et al., 2013).
