Primary sternal osteomyelitis (PSO) is rare. In a 9-year-old boy with Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia, magnetic resonance imaging helped to promptly establish the diagnosis of PSO.

Magnetic resonance imaging may be superior to other imaging studies for the diagnosis of PSO.Primary sternal osteomyelitis (PSO) is rare.
