Post traumatic septic arthritis of the elbow and osteomyelitis of the distal radius in a 12-year-old child

A delay in diagnosing such conditions may result in significant morbidity and mortality. This is a rare case of a patient that developed ipsilateral concomitant osteomyelitis and septic arthritis of the same limb in a child following a fall.
