Staphylococcus aureus is the most common infecting organism found in older children and adults with osteomyelitis.

Gram negative bacteria - vertebral body infections in adults.

Pseudomonas  - intravenous drug abusers.

Fungal osteomyelitis - chronically ill patients receiving long-term intravenous therapy or parenteral nutrition.

Salmonella osteomyelitis - Sickle cell hemoglobinopathies - tends to be diaphyseal.

Infants -S. aureus (most common),group B streptococcus & gram-negative coliforms . 
Group B streptococcus - otherwise healthy infants 2 to 4 weeks of age.
