  • Benign Structures Mimicking Right Atrial Masses on Prenatal Ultrasound

    • Abstract: Advances in imaging have resulted in more frequent reporting of primitive right atrial structures which can sometimes mimic cardiac tumors in prenatal ultrasound. Prominent crista terminalis and Chiari network are examples of these structures. We describe two cases of pregnant women referred to the fetal cardiology clinic for fetal echocardiography for right atrial masses seen on prenatal ultrasound suspicious of tuberous sclerosis. The first case subsequently diagnosed as crista terminalis and the second case as a prominent Chiari network. Postnatal ECHO confirmed the benign nature of these structures. It is important to differentiate tumors from prominent benign structures in the right atrium in fetal ECHO. The location and the similar echogenicity to the adjacent atrial tissue are clues for differentiation of these structures from atrial tumors.

  • Pediatric Case of Li–Fraumeni Syndrome in Honduras

    • Abstract: Li–Fraumeni syndrome is an inherited, autosomal dominant disease. It is categorized as a rare disease caused by mutations of the TP53 gene, which causes increased susceptibility of the patients and their children to many types of cancer. Choroid plexus tumor is rare, which occurs in 0.3 cases per 1,000,000 people, of which 40% turn out to be carcinomas. We present a 12-year-old boy with a history of worsening headaches of more than one month, gait disturbance, projectile vomiting, and right hemiparesis. An intraventricular tumor was identified in the occipital of the left lateral ventricle, which turned out to be a TP53-mutant choroidal plexus carcinoma.

  • COVID-19-Associated Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome Complicated with
           Giant Coronary Artery Aneurysm

    • Abstract: In the early stages of the outbreak of the novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), it was assumed that this infection is very mild and uncommon in children. However, recent reports have shown that children may also develop the disease and its severe complications. These complications included shock, multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C), and pneumonia in children. A previously healthy 14-month-old boy presented with fever, irritability, and skin rash, besides changes in the lips, conjunctiva, and tongue. His medical history, clinical presentations, treatment, laboratory data, and follow-up information were recorded. He was treated according to the diagnosis of Kawasaki disease (KD). He had a history of close contact with a COVID-19 patient. However, the result of reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) assay for COVID-19 was negative. Immunoglobulin M for COVID-19 was positive (1.20), while immunoglobulin G was negative (0.37). Three weeks later, seroconversion of COVID-19 immunoglobulin G (1.42) occurred. Despite treatment with two doses of intravenous immunoglobulin and methylprednisolone, coronary artery ectasia was detected. On the sixth day of hospitalization, the patient experienced hypotension, which necessitated treatment with inotropic drugs and resulted in a change of diagnosis to MIS-C. The later echocardiography showed evidence of coronary artery aneurysm (CAA), which finally changed to giant CAA. Although the patient was treated with infliximab, the size of CAA showed a significant decrease in the one-month follow-up. This is the first report of MIS-C during the COVID-19 pandemic in Iran, accompanied by KD, which was complicated with giant CAA.

  • Intestinal Obstruction in a Child with Massive Ascariasis

    • Abstract: Soil-transmitted helminths are so prevalent in the tropics and low developing countries. Pediatric clinical presentation of ascariasis, the most common helminth, as the intestinal obstruction is not only rare but also less described. We present a case of a 4-year-old girl with massive ascariasis. She presented with a 3-day history of acute abdominal pain associated with vomiting and an episode of passing long white roundworms, about 5 cm in length, through the nose. The child had mild constipation and passed pellets of hard stool once in the last 72 hours. She was in fair general condition at the examination but had significant findings on abdominal examination. On palpation, there was a soft mass localized in the left paraumbilical area and no tenderness, with normal bowel sounds on auscultation. Exploratory laparotomy was sanctioned where roundworms (Ascaris lumbricoides), saucepan full, were delivered through a 2.5 cm enterotomy incision. Postoperative management was carried out, and the child discharged on the 7th day of treatment including a 3-day course of albendazole 400 mg daily.

  • A Rare Case of Parotid Gland Tuberculosis

    • Abstract: Parotid gland tuberculosis is a very rare form of extrapulmonary tuberculosis, with less than 200 cases reported in literature. We describe a 10-year-old female who presented with a swelling in the left parotid region during the last month. CT scan neck revealed an abscess in the left parotid gland extending into the submandibular gland, muscles, and bone. Pus aspirated by FNAC showed acid fast bacilli in the ZN stain, and GeneXpert was positive for rifampicin-sensitive Mycobacterium tuberculosis. She was successfully treated with antituberculous therapy given for 6 months. Parotid gland tuberculosis, although rare, has a good prognosis with drug therapy. Surgery is rarely required.

  • Sclerema Neonatorum in a Term Infant: A Case Report and Literature Review

    • Abstract: Sclerema neonatorum (SN) is a rare form of panniculitides with an obscure incidence, aetiology, and pathogenesis. This condition is peculiar to preterm neonates, especially those with comorbidities such as sepsis, congenital anomalies, congenital heart disease, and gastrointestinal and respiratory diseases. Usually, it presents within the first seven days of life, but may develop a few weeks later. Typically, SN manifests with diffuse hardening of the skin and subcutaneous tissues that subsequently bind to the underlying muscle and bone, often beginning in the buttocks, thighs, or trunk, and progressing to other body parts, but sparing the soles, palms, and genitalia. Diagnosis is based on clinical characteristics. It has been associated with a high mortality, despite aggressive use of various treatment modalities such as antibiotics, steroids, fresh blood transfusion, exchange blood transfusion, and intravenous immunoglobins. This is a report of a macrosomic term neonate who presented with typical clinical and histopathological features of SN.

  • Familial Mediterranean Fever with Neonatal Onset: Case Report

    • Abstract: Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is an autosomal recessively inherited disorder characterized by recurrent fever and attacks of abdominal pain, chest pain, and joint pain. Attacks of recurrent fever and serositis are encountered clinically. Attacks may present either with only one symptom or many simultaneous symptoms. Although most of the patients are diagnosed clinically above the age of 2, those cases who are diagnosed before 2 years of age and with clinical course of isolated fever are believed to have a more serious course and tend to develop amyloidosis. In this article, a case who was admitted first on the 22nd day of life and later diagnosed to have FMF with recurrent attacks of isolated fever and no other focus is presented. We emphasize that FMF may present as early as in the first month of life, and it should be considered in cases presenting with fever of unknown origin and misdiagnosed to have late neonatal sepsis or occult bacteremia at this age group.

  • The Efficacy of Denosumab in the Management of a Tibial Paediatric
           Aneurysmal Bone Cyst Compromised by Rebound Hypercalcaemia

    • Abstract: Surgery is the main treatment option for patients with aneurysmal bone cyst (ABC). We report our experience of using denosumab as an alternative treatment in a child with a multiply recurrent and unresectable tibial ABC. The efficacy and safety of denosumab in the paediatric population, and in the treatment of ABC, are still to be fully evaluated. We describe a 13-year-old boy with an extensive and aggressive ABC involving the proximal tibia, which had recurred following multiple previous surgeries. The patient had ongoing severe pain, was unable to weight-bear, and was at significant risk of pathological fracture. En bloc resection and embolization were not deemed viable, and a decision to use denosumab was made. He received 17 doses of subcutaneous denosumab (70 mg/m2) over a 27-month period, at increasing dose intervals. His symptoms significantly improved, and bony consolidation was observed within six months of treatment. He was able to walk without protection and fully weight-bear without any pain by 18 months. With an increase to a six-month dosing interval, the patient presented with a severe, symptomatic rebound hypercalcaemia requiring bisphosphonate therapy. This reoccurred on two further occasions. This case adds to the evidence that denosumab is effective in the treatment of ABC in paediatric patients, but there is a risk of rebound hypercalcaemia. Therefore, patient awareness and biochemical monitoring for rebound hypercalcaemia are essential.

  • A Case of a Two-Month-Old Boy Diagnosed with Infantile Crohn’s Disease
           Based on an Atypical Perianal Lesion

    • Abstract: Inflammatory bowel disease is rare in infants, and the early diagnosis is very important. We herein report an infant who received an early diagnosis of infantile Crohn’s disease (CD). A two-month-old boy presented with bloody stool. He developed a poor sucking tendency and a painful perianal lesion at three months of age. He was suspected of having infantile CD because of his atypical perianal lesion. Colonoscopy revealed that his perianal lesion had induced rectal longitudinal ulcers. Histology showed no granulomas but patchy inflammation reaching the submucosal layer. He was diagnosed with infantile CD based on the Japanese criteria. CD should be suspected in infants with atypical perianal lesions, irrespective of their age. Early colonoscopy with histology should be considered in these cases in order to prevent adverse outcomes in children.

  • Do Not Huff, Puff, or Vape That Stuff: Interstitial Airspace Disease in a
           Teenager

    • Abstract: A 17-year-old previously healthy male was admitted to the hospital for intractable and persistent vomiting, fever, cough, abdominal pain, and intermittent diarrhea and dehydration. He presented with severe chest pain and O2 desaturations up to 80% on room air. An infectious (including a nasopharyngeal swab), GI, and cardiac workup was completed and was negative except for elevated inflammatory markers with a C-reactive protein (CRP) level of 261 mg/L, erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) of 53 mm/hr, and a D-dimer level of 0.93 mcg/ml. Chest X-ray showed diffuse multifocal infiltrates. The patient was treated with ceftriaxone and azithromycin initially for a suspected pneumonia. He was also started on 4L of nasal cannula O2 supplementation. Due to persistent hypoxic respiratory failure, worsening respiratory distress clinically, with tachypnea and retractions, and lab findings of elevated D-dimer, a chest CT was performed to rule out a pulmonary embolism (PE). Computed tomography (CT) findings were negative for PE but notable for diffuse airspace opacities, primarily within the lower lobes, with a ground-glass appearance concerning for ARDS. Upon further investigation of the social history, the patient admitted to vaping nicotine products for the past 4 years and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) products within the last several months. He was immediately started on prednisone 30 mg BID for a diagnosis of e-cigarette or vaping product use-associated lung injury (EVALI) and started showing clinical improvement. The patient was able to be weaned off of supplemental oxygen to room air, and clinical symptoms of respiratory distress began to improve over the next 24 hours.

  • Neutropenic Enterocolitis Disclosing an Underlying Cyclic Neutropenia

    • Abstract: Neutropenic enterocolitis is a syndrome characterized by fever and abdominal pain in a neutropenic patient. It is often reported in children treated for leukemia and rarely reported in patients with other diseases. Herein, we report the case of a 9-year-old patient with a medical history of recurrent fever and mouth ulcers since the age of 4, who presented with neutropenic enterocolitis complicated with intestinal perforation which all leaded to disclose cyclic neutropenia. The patient was successfully treated by aggressive supportive care combined with surgical intervention. Neutropenic enterocolitis with possible complications should be considered and promptly managed in every neutropenic patient and may reveal a rare cause of neutropenia as cyclic neutropenia.

  • Yersinia pseudotuberculosis Infection Complicated with Bacteremia in a
           10-Month-Old Boy

    • Abstract: Yersinia pseudotuberculosis (Y. pseudotuberculosis) infection complicated with bacteremia rarely occurs. Y. pseudotuberculosis infection is also known to produce various symptoms similar to Kawasaki disease (KD) due to the production of Y. pseudotuberculosis-derived mitogen (YPM), an exotoxin with superantigen activity. Moreover, it causes terminal ileitis and is responsible for appendix swelling. Here, we report a case of Y. pseudotuberculosis infection in a 10-month-old boy who was brought to our hospital due to fever, watery stool, and poor vitality. Abdominal echocardiography revealed wall thickening of the entire colon and appendix swelling; therefore, he was admitted and treated with antibiotics for bacterial enteritis or appendicitis. After the antibiotic administration, facial skin rashes and hand and foot edema developed. However, he had 5/6 major symptoms of KD and was diagnosed with Y. pseudotuberculosis infection because of its presence in the blood and stool cultures. Thereafter, antibacterial therapy improved his symptoms and increased the inflammatory response. After his hospital discharge, the skin on his fingers showed desquamation like that of KD. Y. pseudotuberculosis infection should be considered as a differential disease in KD, terminal ileitis, and appendicitis. Furthermore, its infection route and culture methods should also be carefully considered.

  • Varying Presentations of Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome Temporarily
           Associated with COVID-19

    • Abstract: Background. A novel coronavirus identified in 2019 leads to a pandemic of severe acute respiratory distress syndrome with important morbidity and mortality. Initially, children seemed minimally affected, but there were reports of cases similar to (atypical) Kawasaki disease or toxic shock syndrome, and evidence emerges about a complication named paediatric inflammatory multisystem syndrome temporarily associated with SARS-CoV-2 (PIMS-TS) or multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C). Case Presentations. Two cases were compared and discussed demonstrating varying presentations, management, and evolution of MIS-C. These cases are presented to increase awareness and familiarity among paediatricians and emergency physicians with the different clinical manifestations of this syndrome. Discussion. MIS-C may occur with possible diverse clinical presentations. Early recognition and treatment are paramount for a beneficial outcome.

  • Mimic for Child Physical Abuse: Biochemical and Genetic Evidence of
           Hypophosphatasia without Classic Radiologic Findings

    • Abstract: Infants presenting with multiple fractures without a plausible accident history need to be evaluated for child abuse or underlying predisposing conditions such as osteogenesis imperfecta and hypophosphatasia. We present a case of infantile hypophosphatasia with multiple unexplained fractures but otherwise normal radiographs in the setting of biochemical and genetic evidence of hypophosphatasia. Standard screening tests for hypophosphatasia include serum alkaline phosphatase level and genetic testing. Despite the presented case’s positive biochemical and genetic testing, the case did not have any other radiologic finding suggesting infantile hypophosphatasia, such as severe bone mineralization deficits and rickets. While patients with hypophosphatasia can have increased bone fragility, this has been reported in the context of radiologic abnormalities of the skeleton. Thus, this case is potentially the first reported infantile hypophosphatasia case presenting with no findings of rickets on radiographs, raising concern that the fractures and especially the radius head dislocation might be due to physical abuse.

  • A New Presentation: Aphallia, Vesicoureteral Reflux, Rectovesical Fistula,
           and Adrenal Insufficiency

    • Abstract: Aphallia or penile agenesis is a rare congenital malformation with an estimated incidence rate of 1 in 10 to 30 million births. More than half of aphallia cases have associated anomalies including caudal axis, cardiovascular, genitourinary, and gastrointestinal anomalies. The penile agenesis associated with adrenal insufficiency has never been reported in an infant. We report a rare case of a newborn that was diagnosed as a case of aphallia with vesicorectal fistula and vesicoureteral reflux, complicated by adrenal insufficiency with salt-wasting crisis.

  • Evaluation and Management of Symptomatic Vasospasm following Endoscopic
           Endonasal Resection of Pediatric Adamantinomatous Craniopharyngioma

    • Abstract: Background. Cerebral vasospasm is a well-described pathology following subarachnoid hemorrhage and trauma in children; however, very few cases have been published following craniopharyngioma resection in children. Those that were published were associated with significant morbidity or mortality at hospital discharge. Case Summary. Here, we report the challenging clinical course of a pediatric patient who developed delayed cerebral vasospasm following craniopharyngioma resection. It was first noted on postoperative day 13. The patient was managed with induced hypertension, hypervolemia, and intra-arterial vasodilator therapy (nicardipine). This patient made a full recovery without new focal deficits at hospital discharge. Conclusion. In contrast to previously reported similar pediatric cases, this patient with cerebral vasospasm after craniopharyngioma resection made a full recovery without new focal neurologic deficits. To our knowledge, this is the first occurrence of a patient with this clinical course.

  • Altered Mental Status and Cyanosis in a Pediatric Patient with
           Methemoglobinemia

    • Abstract: Methemoglobinemia results from increased amounts of oxidized hemoglobin in the blood with an ensuing change in oxygen dissociation curve and lack of oxygen delivery to tissue. A previously well, male toddler was brought to the Pediatric Emergency Department (PED) by Emergency Medical Services (EMS) with abrupt onset of altered mental status and cyanosis after a suspected ingestion of “Rush” nail polish remover. He was quickly diagnosed with methemoglobinemia by both clinical presentation and chocolate-colored blood appearance. He emergently received intravenous (IV) methylene blue (MB) with immediate and sustained improvement requiring no further doses. Though inhalation of nitrites and subsequent methemoglobinemia is frequently reported in adolescents, we were unable to find any cases in the literature detailing ingestion of this product and the resulting clinical manifestations. Our objective with this report is to describe a rare case of a toddler with an accidental ingestion of “Rush” nail polish remover, a nitrite compound. Our patient presented to the PED with abrupt onset of altered level of consciousness, hypotension, and cyanosis resulting from acquired methemoglobinemia. This case report demonstrates the importance of emergency clinicians being able to make clinical judgements and decisions based on the history and physical exam when methemoglobinemia is suspected.

  • Diagnosis of Neonatal Herpes Simplex Infection from the Placenta

    • Abstract: Due to a high rate of fetal demise and premature birth in intrauterine HSV infection, the outcome in neonates is usually adverse. A female preterm infant with a gestational age of 25 1/7 weeks with expected early clinical course tested positive for neonatal herpes simplex virus (HSV) 2 after the neonatologist was informed of positive immunohistochemistry for the virus on the fifth day of life by the pathologist. Pathological examination of the placenta had revealed subacute necrotizing inflammation with stromal cell necrosis suggestive of intrauterine infection, possibly ascending due to prolonged rupture of membranes. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case wherein placental pathology indicated exposure to HSV in utero before the infant presented with signs or symptoms of neonatal HSV resulting in a favorable outcome for the infant. Due to the variability of presentation of intrauterine HSV infection, pathological examination of the placenta in the first 2–5 days of life in premature infants can provide clues to the diagnosis of neonatal HSV which may significantly impact the outcome.

  • Use of Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation in Pneumocystis Pneumonia of an
           Infant with AIDS

    • Abstract: Pneumocystis pneumonia is a common complication of cellular immunosuppression and may trigger severe pulmonary complications. Rapid onset of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome is possible in infants infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). We report here the case of a 13-week-old girl who was previously healthy presenting with altered immunity and refractory acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) initially attributed to bacterial pneumonia. Venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VV-ECMO) was initiated because her condition was poor. An HIV infection was later fortuitously diagnosed after accidental exposure of a nurse to the child’s urine. The mother had congenitally transmitted HIV to the child after late (undetected) infection during pregnancy. The lung lesions were finally attributed to Pneumocystis pneumonia. We prescribed combined antiretroviral, antibiotic, and steroid therapy aimed at preventing immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome. VV-ECMO weaning progressed over 30 days to the time of decannulation, rapidly followed by extubation and hospital discharge. The case highlights the fact that rare curable causes of refractory pediatric ARDS should always be investigated early. VV-ECMO should not be excluded as an ARDS treatment for immunocompromised children.

  • A Rare Case of Contralateral Diaphragm Paralysis following Birth Injury
           with Brachial Plexus Palsy: A Case Report and Review of the Literature

    • Abstract: Clinical History. A 4.4 kg male was born to a 25-year-old, G2P1, nondiabetic woman at 39 and 5/7 weeks. Delivery was complicated by shoulder dystocia requiring forceps-assisted vaginal delivery, resulting in left arm Erb’s palsy secondary to left brachial plexus injury. He was born with low muscle tone and bradycardia and subsequently required intubation for poor respiratory effort. He was extubated on day one of life but continued to be tachypneic and have borderline oxygen saturation, requiring intensive care. Chest radiographs demonstrated a progressive clearing of his lung fields, consistent with presumptively diagnosed meconium aspiration. However, a persistent elevation of the right hemidiaphragm was noted, and his tachypnea and increased work of breathing continued. Focused ultrasound of the diaphragm was performed, confirming decreased motion of the right hemidiaphragm. Following a multidisciplinary discussion, thoracoscopic right diaphragm plication was performed on the 33rd day of life. He was extubated postoperatively and subsequently weaned to room air with a notable decrease in tachypnea over 48 hours. He was discharged on postoperative day 12 and continues to thrive at 6 months of age without respiratory embarrassment. Purpose. Ipsilateral phrenic nerve injury with diaphragm paralysis from shoulder dystocia during vaginal delivery is a recognized phenomenon. Herein, we present a case of contralateral diaphragm paralysis in order to draw attention to the clinician that this discordance is possible. Key Points. According to Raimbault et al., clinical management of newborns who experience birth injury is a multidisciplinary effort. According to Fitting and Grassino, though most cases of phrenic nerve injuries are ipsilateral to shoulder dystocia brachial plexus palsy, contralateral occurrence is possible and should be considered. According to Waters, diaphragm plication is a safe and effective operation.

  • Grisel’s Syndrome in Children: Two Case Reports and Systematic
           Review of the Literature

    • Abstract: Background and Objective. Grisel’s syndrome is a rare syndrome characterized by nontraumatic rotatory subluxation of the atlantoaxial joint. It usually affects children and typically presents with torticollis after ear, nose, and throat (ENT) surgery or head and neck infections. In the pediatric literature, there is only a small amount of available data; moreover, no systematic review has been previously done with focus on the pediatric population. We report our experience of two cases, and we provide a systematic review on Grisel’s syndrome in children in order to offer a deeper insight about its clinical presentation, its current diagnosis, and principles of treatment. Case Reports and Review. We describe two boys of 9 and 8 years old, who developed atlantoaxial subluxation after adenoidectomy. Considering the early diagnosis, a conservative treatment was chosen, with no recurrence and no sequelae at follow-up. We identified 114 case reports, of which 90 describe children, for a total of 171 pediatric patients. Of the 154 cases in which cause was reported, 59.7% presented a head and neck infection and 35.7% had previous head and neck surgery. There is no sex prevalence (49.7% males versus 50.2% females). Mean delay in diagnosis is 33 days. Eight % of the patients had neurological impairment of the 165 cases which mentioned treatment, 96% underwent a conservative treatment, of whom the 8.8% recurred with the need of surgery. As a whole, 12% underwent surgery as a first- or second-line treatment. 3 6% of the patients whose follow-up was reported developed a sequela, minor limitation of neck movement being the most frequent. Conclusion. Grisel’s syndrome should be suspected in children with painful unresponsive torticollis following ENT procedures or head and neck inflammation. CT scan with 3D reconstruction is the gold standard for diagnosis, allowing the identification of the subluxation and the classification according to the Fielding–Hawkins grading system. Surgical treatment is indicated in case of high-grade instability or failure of conservative treatment. Review of the literature shows how early diagnosis based on clinical and radiological evaluation is crucial in order to avoid surgical treatment and neurologic sequelae.

  • Octreotide Infusion for the Treatment of Congenital Chylothorax

    • Abstract: Congenital chylothorax is an uncommon cause of pleural effusion in the pediatric age group, and it should be kept in consideration when evaluating a neonate with pleural effusion, as it is the commonest cause of pleural effusion in this age group (Tutor, 2014). No commonly accepted guidelines have been published so far regarding the management of congenital chylothorax in the neonate, but trials of octreotide have appeared to be promising (Bellini et al., 2018). We present a neonate with congenital chylothorax successfully treated with octreotide infusion.

  • A Rare Cause of Pulmonary Hypertension in a 4-Year-Old Toddler:
           Association of Cor Triatriatum Sinister and Pulmonary Arteriovenous
           Malformation

    • Abstract: Cor triatriatum sinister is a rare congenital cardiac anomaly. The anomaly is caused by a fibromuscular membrane that divides the left atrium into two cavities. This membrane can lead to the obstruction of left atrial flow and also create pulmonary venous hypertension. Pulmonary arteriovenous malformation (PAVM) is notorious for its aberrant blood flow between the pulmonary arteries and veins. Herein, we report a case of a 4-year-old toddler who had a unique form of pulmonary hypertension presenting with cor triatriatum sinister and diffuse PAVM. After the surgical treatment of cor triatriatum sinister, both pulmonary arteriovenous malformation and pulmonary hypertension disappeared.

  • Chest Wall Mass in Infancy: The Presentation of Bone-Tumor-Like BCG
           Osteitis

    • Abstract: Chest wall mass in infancy is rare. Malignant lesions are more common than infection or benign tumors. This is a case of a 12-month-old girl who presented with a 2 cm mass at the right costal margin and poor weight gain. Chest radiograph demonstrated a moth-eaten osteolytic lesion at the 8th rib. The resection was performed, and a mass with pus content was found. The positive acid fast stain (AFB) organism was noted. Pathology confirmed caseous granulomatous inflammation compatible with mycobacterial infection. However, QuantiFERON-TB Gold was negative, so Mycobacterium bovis (M. bovis) osteitis is highly suspected. She was treated with antimycobacterium drugs and showed good results. Osteomyelitis can manifest by mimicking bone tumors. Without a biopsy, the pathogen may go undetected. So, interventions such as biopsy are warranted and avoid mass resection without indication. High C-reactive protein (CRP), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), periosteal reaction of radiating spicules, and penumbra sign in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are helpful for discriminating osteomyelitis from bone tumor.
