Abstract: In this study, we evaluated fracture incidence over a 10-year period among men with and without osteomyelitis from the Veterans Aging Cohort Study. Fracture incidence was significantly higher among those with osteomyelitis at all osteoporotic fracture sites after adjusting for key related risk factors. Future prospective studies are warranted.
