Pyogenic vertebral osteomyelitis is rare. It most commonly occurs at the lumbar area and in the fifth to seventh decades of life. Most individuals present with back pain, abdominal pain, hip pain and meningeal syndrome. We experienced three cases of unusual patterns of pyogenic osteomyelitis. The first case developed after sepsis. The second case developed after open fracture and infection of other site. The third case was misdiagnosed as metastatic cancer. We present these cases with a brief review of literatures.
