Abstract

Chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO) is a rare idiopathic inflammatory disease that affects mainly children and young adults, resulting in significant morbidity especially if not diagnosed early. The clinical signs and symptoms are nonspecific, with a consequential delay in diagnosis. Radiological and histopathological criteria are important for its definition. Two cases of CRMO are reported, highlighting the diagnostic challenge and demonstrating the importance of timely investigations.
