Formatted abstract
We report an unusual case of multidrug-resistant Escherichia coli bacteraemia causing multifocal abscesses, septic arthritis, lumbar discitis and osteomyelitis after transrectal ultrasound-guided prostate biopsy, requiring restricted antibiotics and surgical debridement. This case highlights the importance of risk assessment, prophylactic and therapeutic antimicrobial use, and urology–infectious diseases collaboration to improve clinical outcomes after such procedures.
