Osteomyelitis pubis in athletes is very rare. This pathology is often confused with osteitis pubis, and delays in treatment may lead to residual sequelae. We encountered a case of osteomyelitis pubis in a 16-year-old high school soccer player. Despite early diagnosis, starting treatment, and subsidence of infection, the patient was unable to return to competitive sports. We report this case and discuss the relevant literature.
