Osteomyelitis is the medical name for an infection of a bone or a bone marrow. Infections can reach a bone by traveling through the bloodstream, spreading from nearby tissue or when injury exposes the bone to germs. This disease was once considered an incurable condition, but with help of antibiotics it can be successfully treated today. Most people will require surgery to remove parts of the bone that have been infected depending on the time and stage in which the disease was detected and then, to completely eradicate this infection, they must take strong antibiotics typically for at least six weeks. So, if he gets proper treatment this 17 year old should completely recover.
