Abstract

A case of unilateral tibial osteomyelitis in a 20-month-old child after bilateral intraosseous infusion (IOI) needle placement is presented. A review of the indications, potential complications, and scan findings is discussed. This case also shows the lack of significant uptake in the noninfected side, suggesting that a three-phase bone scan is of value in differentiating reactive bone from infected bone in patients with IOI.
