Answer

Osteomyelitis secondary to B henselae, while still rare, is being reported with increased frequency. Hajjaji et al reviewed the literature and found 47 cases that met criteria and had sufficient data. [52] They noted the vertebral column and pelvic girdle were the most commonly affected locations.
