We describe a 12-year-old boy in whom primary Staphylococcus aureus thrombophlebitis of the femoral and iliac veins developed without history of trauma and with no association with acute osteomyelitis. The patient responded to therapy with intravenously administered antibiotics for 6 weeks, although oxacillin-associated hepatitis developed during the course of treatment.
