Osteomyelitis involving the symphysis pubis is a rare complication of pelvic surgery, and differentiation with osteitis pubis may be difficult. Herein we present a case of a patient in whom a disabling pubic pain developed 4 months after a radical cystectomy for bladder cancer. His pain was unresponsive to medical and antibiotic therapy and subsequently proved to be caused by pubic osteomyelitis secondary to a small-bowel fistula precipitated by cancer recurrence.
