Abstract: Chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO) is commonly confused with hematogenous bacterial osteomyelitis. It is a rare, inherited, autoinflammatory disease of children, adolescents, and occasionally, adults. The CRMO causes focal skeletal pain and tenderness at the site of inflammation that can greatly limit physical activity. We present 2 patients of CRMO who underwent an extensive workup to rule out an infectious cause.
