CARDENAS, John Lidemberto. Acute osteomyelitis by Cedecea lapagei. Acta Med Colomb [online]. 2015, vol.40, n.3, pp.246-248. ISSN 0120-2448.

A case of acute osteomyelitis in a patient with closed fracture of the ulna and radio by a traffic accident is presented. Cedecea lapagei was isolated in bone tissue culture obtained in surgery when he was brought to washing and curettage. The clinical evolution and treatment are presented and discussed in this report. A review on this bacterium and the main types of infection that it causes as well as factors related to its presentation, are made. (Acta Med Colomb 2015; 40: 246-248).
