A case of acute clival osteomyelitis in a 7-year-old boy secondary to infection of a Thornwaldt cyst

Clival osteomyelitis is a potentially life-threatening infection that can occur in healthy children. It can be related to congenital anomalies. We report the case of a 7-year-old boy with Streptococcus intermedius and Fusobacterium clival osteomyelitis arising from a Thornwaldt cyst situated in a fossa navicularis magna of the occipital bone. Multidisciplinary management is necessary to ensure rapid improvement and complete healing.
