A Brodie abscess is a subacute osteomyelitis, which may persist for years before progressing to a chronic, frank osteomyelitis. Classically, this may present after progression to a draining abscess extending from the tibia out through the skin. Occasionally acute osteomyelitis may be contained to a localized area and walled off by fibrous and granulation tissue.
The most frequent causative organism is Staphylococcus aureus.
Usually occurs at the metaphysis of long bones. Distal tibia, proximal tibia, distal femur, proximal or distal fibula, and distal radius.
Few homoeopathic medicine can be thought of in the treatment of Brodie abscess are:
Hepar sulph., Mercurius sol., Phosphorus, Silicea and Calcarea phos.
