Abstract
A 57-year-old man who simultaneously underwent an operation for repair of rotator cuff and a revision operation for nonunion of a Pilon fracture presented with osteomyelitis of the humeral head on the 19th day after surgery due to MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) infection. Infection was controlled after administration of appropriate intravenous antibiotic therapy and performance of several surgical procedures. However, devastating defects at the humeral head and the rotator cuff remained. No case of short term MRSA induced osteomyelitis has been reported.
