Abstract provided by Publisher
 
Subacute acetabular osteomyelitis is a rare disease of bone. Deep location of the infection site sometimes may delay diagnosis. The most common cause is Staphylococcus aureus, whereas Proteus organisms are very rare etiologic agents. The aim of this case report is to present an unusual case of subacute acetabular osteomyelitis caused by Proteus mirabilis in a 12-year-old boy. Subacute acetabular osteomyelitis can be induced by Proteus mirabilis in the absence of previous trauma, predisposing conditions or disease. The patient was successfully treated with antibiotics. Local biopsy was essential in diagnosing this infection. Antibiotics should be given only after clinical sampling and susceptibility tests.
