Xanthogranulomatous Osteomyelitis is a rare form a chronic osteomyelitis. Most cases presents with severe chronic inflammation with pain, fever and leukocytosis. Radiological findings in all described cases revealed a lytic lesion, which was most often diagnosed clinically as a bone tumor.It is characterized by composition of immune cell aggregation on histological studies. Delayed-type hypersensitivity reaction of cell-mediated immunity may be implicated in its pathogenesis. [6]
