In brief: Salmonella osteo

This depends upon whether this is acute vs.
Chronic osteomyelitis. In the chronic form you may need input from an orthopedical surgeon for debridement of devitalized bone combined with a long-term antibiotic preferrably given iv, although if sensitive to a fluorinated quinolone like Cipro (ciprofloxacin) this may be effective orally over at least a 4 wk course.
