Extract

A 55-year-old man with diabetes mellitus was in his usual state of health until the day before admission, when he experienced severe abdominal pain that was relieved by a bowel movement several hours later. The following day, he developed excruciating right hip pain while driving. He presented to an emergency department with a temperature of 40°C (104°F) and no focal signs. He was given a dose of IV ceftriaxone. The patient was transferred to our institution for further care.
