Abstract

Osteomyelitis is a debilitating bone infection often caused by the bacterial pathogen Staphylococcus aureus. In this issue, Cassat et al. (2013) develop a high-resolution microcomputed tomography (microCT) method to visualize bone remodeling during S. aureus infection and discover that the metalloprotease aureolysin plays a critical role in modulating osteomyelitis pathogenesis.
