Abstract

Most osteoarticular infections in children are due to Staphylococcus aureus. In this case, the isolation of Kingella kingae by image guided disc aspiration resulted in modification and optimization of treatment. We take a look at a case of spondylodiscitis in a young child and review some of the current literature with regards to Kingella kingae infections.
