OLIVEIRA, Carolina et al. Sacroileíte Piogénica: Caso Clínico. Rev. Port. Ortop. Traum. [online]. 2017, vol.25, n.1, pp.49-55. ISSN 1646-2122.

Pyogenic sacroiliitis is a rare disease, accounting for only 1-2% of all osteoarticular infections in children. The diagnosis is difficult because of its rarity, vague clinical signs and similar to septic arthritis of the hip. Although excellent prognosis, late diagnosis can lead to various complications such as abscess formation, sequestrum and sepsis. Treatment involves a course of prolonged antibiotic therapy, reserving the surgical approach for selected cases. A case of pyogenic sacroiliitis is displayed, in a male child, 11 years old.
