Successful Treatment of Spondylodiscitis and Infectious Sacroiliitis due to Listeria monocytogenes using Meropenem as Salvage Therapy
KeywordsSpondylodiscitis, sacroiliitis, osteoarticular infection, Listeria monocytogenes
Infectious sacroiliitis is a rare disease that can occur in conjunction with other osteoarticular infections. Furthermore, it is very unusual for Listeria monocytogenes to be identified in an osteoarticular infection, with spondylodiscitis being the most frequent such infection. We report a case of spondylodiscitis with infectious sacroiliitis due to infection with L. monocytogenes treated successfully with meropenem as salvage therapy.
