Chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO) is an inflammatory disease of unknown cause. In general, CRMO follows a characteristic clinical course and is regarded at present as a distinct entity. It affects bone and occurs predominantly in children and adolescents. The clinical, radiologic and pathologic findings are non-specific. The recognition of this rare entity is often delayed and difficulties in patient management sometimes emerge from its usual protracted course. We present a 6-year-old girl diagnosed with CRMO involving tibia and lumbar vertebra where a multidisciplinary approach was essential in making the diagnosis.
