Infection with multidrug resistant Burkholderia cepacia presents a therapeutic challenge in patients with cystic fibrosis. In this study, we present a case of progressive cervical osteomyelitis secondary to B cepacia that failed surgical drainage and extended therapy with meropenem, piperacillin-tazobactam, doxycycline, and aminoglycosides. Temocillin (Negaban) was successfully used to clear the infection.
