Granulomatous infections are commonly associated with mycobacteria, brucellosis, actinomycosis, nocardiosis, spirochetes, and fungi. Rarely, granuloma formation is a host response to other bacterial infection. Osteomyelitis and osteitis that reactivate many years after the primary episode is a known phenomenon. A reactivation that presents as a granulomatous disease is rare. We present a case of reactivated osteitis due to Moraxella osloensis with consecutive granuloma formation.
