ABSTRACT: Seventeen diabetic patients with moderate to mild foot lesions associated with 20 osteomyelitic bones diagnosed by both bone scan and bone biopsy received rifampicin plus ofloxacin for a median duration of 6 months. Cure was defined as disappearance of all signs and symptoms of infection at the end of the treatment and absence of relapse during follow up. At the end of the treatment period, cure was achieved in 15 patients (88.2%) and was maintained in 13 patients (76.5%) at the end of an average post-treatment follow-up of 22 months. No serious drug-related adverse events were recorded.
