Did you know Garre's osteomyelitis is better termed chronic osteomyelitis with proliferative periostitis??
Chronic osteomyelitis with proliferative periostitis (COPP) is eponymously called Garre’s osteomyelitis. Now, Garre reported a form of acute osteomyelitis that affected both adults and children.
However, his report did not make any mention of “proliferative periostitis” or the classical “onion skin appearance” (seen in radiographs) of this condition (in fact X-rays were not discovered at the time of Garre’s publication of this condition). Hence the term Garre’s osteomyelitis is not accurate and the condition is better termed chronic osteomyelitis with proliferative periostitis (COPP).
