We describe the case of an 18-year-old girl with chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO) over a period of 10 years. She had suffered predominantly from very painful recurrent swelling of her cheeks. Various therapeutic regimens including nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs and steroids had shown only a partial or temporary response. Because tumor necrosis factor-alpha-blocking agents have been successfully applied in Crohn's-associated CRMO and the related SAPHO (synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, and osteitis) syndrome, tumor necrosis factor-alpha-blocking therapy with infliximab was initiated. Thereafter, apart from 1 mild episode, no additional recurrences were observed during 21 months of follow-up. Infliximab was well tolerated, and steroids were tapered off. Our observation indicates that infliximab may be an effective therapeutic option in CRMO.
