Abstract

Secondary chest wall infections after previous surgical procedures are well known but the primary form of this is a relatively rare entity. We present a case of a 34-year-old man who suffered from primary suppurative costochondritis diagnosed by ultrasound and chest CT scan. The patient underwent a wide necrosectomy with a muscle flap reconstruction.
