Short summary
We report the treatment of bone infection in a patient with a rare disease which causes overgrowth of the limb. Careful assessment of the scans showed that the infection was in some new bone which had formed in the soft tissues after a minor injury to the leg and not in one of the major bones. This made treatment much easier with a successful outcome.
