Vertebral Osteomyelitis as a Complication Following Transrectal Biopsy: Case Report and Literature Review
Keywords:Â Prostate, transrectal, biopsy, spondylitis, bacteremia.
We present a documented case report of lumbar vertebral osteomyelitis after transrectal biopsy (TRUSB) complicated by sepsis due to Escherichia coli. The Images and histological examination showed an every day more frequent complication. We review the methods of diagnosis and treatment and compare with the scarce literature.
