Osteomyelitis is an inflammatory condition of the bones and bone marrow caused by infection with microorganisms. This disease can cause serious damage to bone structures and requires intensive medical attention. Osteomyelitis is divided into acute, sub-acute and chronic osteomyelitis. In Indonesia, osteomyelitis is still a problem because the level of hygiene is still low and understanding of treatment is not good, diagnosis is delayed, resulting in chronic osteomyelitis. The research seeks to provide an overview of osteomyelitis patients treated at Aji Muhammad Parikesit Regional Hospital from January 2019 to July 2023. The research method used was descriptive observational with a cross-sectional design approach. There is no intervention or treatment given to this variable, but this research focuses on observing the phenomena that occur in this population. Based on research results, the majority of osteomyelitis patients treated at the Orthopedic Surgery Department of Aji Muhammad Parikesit Hospital experienced infections at the bone location in the cruris and the patient's history of implant placement was also a risk factor for osteomyelitis. This study provides an in-depth description of age, gender, patient diagnosis, history of DM, bone location, history of bone implants, and administration of antibiotics in osteomyelitis patients at Aji Muhammad Parikesit Regional Hospital. This information can form the basis for developing strategies for the management and prevention of osteomyelitis in the future.
