• Sequestra—segments of necrotic bone separated from living bone by granulation tissue. Must be removed by debridement owing to inability of antibiotics to sterilize it.

• Brodie’s abscess—bone abscess found during the chronic stage of hematogenous osteomyelitis. It usually has a sclerotic margin on radiograph.
