A case is presented of an-aerobic osteomyelitis with intraosseous gas resulting in the extension of gas in soft tissue structures in a patient with diabetes mellitus. The finding of intraosseous gas and its extension into the pubic joint and the left anterior abdominal wall is depicted. Intraosseous gas is a rare but worrying finding for osteomyelitis in the absence of a penetrative wound, recent surgery, biopsy or fracture.
