These can be gunshot wounds, puncture wounds, a bruised nail, or an open bone fracture.
The infection can also enter the bone from the bloodstream, into which it, in turn, got from a lesion located in another part of the body.
Decreased bone resistance to infection occurs under the influence of a number of factors: bone surgery, diabetes mellitus, rheumatoid arthritis, as well as old age and wasting.
Having penetrated into the bone tissue, bacteria multiply and spread through the central cavity of the bone, where the bone marrow is located.
The infection also penetrates into the dense layers of the bone. With the development of inflammation in the bone, swelling of the surrounding tissues occurs.
Blood clots form in the tiny blood vessels that feed the bone. As a result of a lack of oxygen and nutrients, bone tissue dies.
At the site of bone damage, there may be a sharp pain, aggravated by movement, swelling of the surrounding tissues. The body temperature rises.
