Chronic Osteomyelitis

On the 17th September 2001, I was consulted by this 28 year old woman, suffering from chronic osteomyelitis of the left elbow, since she was 8 years old. She has had in total 30 operations, but continued to suffer from recurring staphylococcal infections, requiring repeat operations and antibiotics. During the first year of her treatment we were able to contain the infections, preventing any further operations. Since September 2002, due to a thorough re-evaluation of her problems, the subsequent treatment, Phosphorus, stopped all further inflammations from setting in. Her last medication was dispensed on the 3rd March 2003. Reports from her mother and sister indicates that she has been in excellent health ever since.
