Abstract

We present a 3-year-old girl who had chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis caused by Coxiella burnetii despite long-term dual antibiotic therapy. Excellent clinical response was achieved and sustained when immunomodulatory therapy with interferon-γ was initiated. This is the case of a first child who was successfully treated with interferon-γ as adjuvant therapy for chronic multifocal Q fever osteomyelitis.
