Neonatal Osteomyelitis concept map

Here is a concept map that I have develped which intricately outlines Chronic Recurrent Multifocal Osteomyelitis (CRMO), an intricate and multifaceted condition.

This map places CRMO at the center, branching into vital categories such as characteristics, causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and associated conditions.

It highlights CRMO’s unique aspects like its recurrent nature and multifocal bone lesions, and points to autoinflammatory and genetic factors as potential causes.

Symptoms are detailed, including recurring bone pain and swelling, while the diagnosis section emphasizes the importance of imaging, biopsy, and ruling out other diseases.

The treatment node covers a range of therapies from NSAIDs to biologic agents, acknowledging the need for physical therapy as well.

Additionally, it underscores the association of CRMO with conditions like psoriasis and inflammatory bowel disease, providing a comprehensive view of its multifaceted nature.
