Short summary
Campylobacter species mainly cause gastrointestinal disease. Systemic complications such as bacteremia and osteoarticular infections are rare. We describe in detail a very rare case of a vertebral osteomyelitis due to C. jejuni and screened literature, identifying six other cases. Besides fluoroquinolones, macrolides like azithromycin may be a treatment option for bone infections due to its good bone penetration in selected cases.
