clinical case 7

A 3 and half year old child came for review in opd after 2 years for follow up and review...

Child at the age of 1and1/2 yrs developed DVT of her left lower limb following ? DPT vaccination in thigh for which she received parenteral heparin. Following which hematoma developed in left thigh which got infected in due course of illness got converted to abscess with discharging sinus. ! year following the persistent discharging sinus a x ray  of left thigh showed features suggestive of COM left femur with sequestrum. The child was treated in this hospital for COM with sequestrectomy and saucerisation. 

Now the present x rays and clinical photographs show the remarkable recovery of the child and x ray with hardly any evidence of previous pathology.
