We report a case of Gemella morbillorum osteomyelitis infection in an otherwise healthy adolescent. This type of osteomyelitis was not reported previously in the English literature. The patient was successfully treated with ampicillin. We conclude that G. morbillorum osteomyelitis can be effectively controlled with drainage and ampicillin administration.
