Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis and affects approximately one-third of people in the United Sates aged 65 years and older. Since 2013, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons has not been able to recommended using hyaluronic acid for patients with symptomatic OA of the knee. Subsequent publications have also cautioned against the use of viscosupplementation based on lack of efficacy and the potential for harm. We present a case of late hemorrhagic pseudoseptic arthritis encountered during TKA due to hyaluronic acid viscosupplementation...

Acute pseudoseptic arthritis is a very rare complication that is associated with intra-articular hyaluronic acid injections, which normally involve minimal risk. The most common adverse events that are caused by hyaluronic acid injections are inflammatory reactions or flares at the injection site. In this study, we described three cases of acute pseudoseptic arthritis that was caused by hyaluronic acid; the symptoms in these cases were reminiscent of acute septic arthritis. Moreover, we performed a literature review on pseudoseptic arthritis following hyaluronic acid injections to determine the manner in which this condition can be described, diagnosed, and treated...

Pseudoseptic arthritis is an acute inflammatory arthritis found in association with a sterile synovial fluid culture despite white blood cell (WBC) counts >100,000 and >75% polymorph neutrophils. This arthritis occurs most frequently in patients with underlying inflammatory or immune disorders. Early distinction from true septic arthritis can decrease the need for unnecessary antibiotics and improve patient outcomes.

Monoarthritis is a diagnostic challenge for the clinician, as the list of associated conditions is quite long. It is accepted that in patients with a diagnosis of inflammatory joint disease monoarthritis represents exacerbation of the underlying disease. However, ignoring the systematized approach to monoarthritides may lead to omissions and mistaken diagnostic implications. This report describes the approach to a case of pseudoseptic arthritis that mimicked an acute episode of recurrent arthritis due to monosodium urate in a patient with retention of an intraarticular foreign body...

Pseudoseptic arthritis is an increasingly recognised entity. It is an inflammatory arthritis that mimics septic arthritis; however, Gram stain and cultures are persistently negative. It is a diagnosis of exclusion. We present the first case, to date, in which pseudoseptic arthritis led to such severe joint degeneration that joint replacement surgery was required. A 54-year-old truck driver with rheumatoid arthritis, on immunosuppressive therapy, presented with acute onset severe left hip pain. He was given a clinical diagnosis of septic arthritis and treated with two prolonged courses of antibiotics despite persistently negative synovial fluid cultures...

Arthritis associated with Behçet's disease is typically nonerosive and nondeforming, and most patients respond to colchicine treatment. However, destructive arthritis and refractory arthritis have also been reported on occasion. Elevated white blood cell counts may occur in synovial fluid in BD, but pseudoseptic arthritis is a very rare event in this disease. We report a patient with BD and rapidly progressive deforming pseudoseptic arthritis refractory to colchicine, corticosteroids, and methotrexate, who entered remission after infliximab treatment...

Purpose. Pseudoseptic arthritis is an acute inflammatory monoarthritis with a sterile synovial gram stain and culture. Pseudoseptic arthritis has been previously described in the literature in a variety of settings including rheumatoid arthritis and microcrystalline disease. Despite pseudoseptic arthritis being a described entity, there is little published data on this topic with no published reports since 1992. Methods. This paper was a retrospective chart review over a 20-year period that identified all rheumatology inpatient consultations at our tertiary rural hospital for pseudoseptic arthritis...

To determine the forms and characteristics of rheumatic diseases whose initial presentation mimics septic arthritis. Retrospective study of 398 patients hospitalized between 1979 and 2005 for arthritis diagnosed and treated as septic. In 10 cases, initial presentation of a rheumatic disease was highly suggestive of septic arthritis, and the patient was treated as such. Three had rheumatoid arthritis, 3 spondyloarthropathies, 2 unclassified rheumatic diseases, 1 Wegener granulomatosis and 1 cytosteatonecrosis...

Pseudoseptic arthritis is primarily described in rheumatoid arthritis and other systemic inflammatory conditions. To our knowledge, only 1 case report of pseudoseptic arthritis associated with intra-articular injection of a pneumococcal polyvalent vaccine (PPV) has been published. Here, a second case is presented in which a patient presented with swelling, pain, and erythema of the affected shoulder. A 59-year-old woman presented to the emergency department with a 3-day history of severe pain and decreased mobility of her left shoulder after receiving a PPV vaccination...

BACKGROUND: No microorganism is identified in 7-35% of cases of septic arthritis. The diagnosis is, therefore, only presumptive. We reviewed our cases of septic arthritis in adult native joints to determine the frequency of negative cultures, disease characteristics and the frequency of misdiagnosis of septic arthritis. METHODS: This retrospective study included all patients admitted to our department from 1979-2005 with arthritis, diagnosed and treated as septic...

Intra-articular injections of hyaluronan are generally well tolerated; the most common adverse event associated with their use is an inflammatory reaction or a flare at the injection site. Naturally derived sodium hyaluronates have not been associated with pseudosepsis; we describe a case of severe arthritis mimicking acute septic arthritis after naturally hyaluronan. A 70-year-old woman had a medial femorotibial and patellofemoral compartment knee osteoarthritis. Hyaluronic acid injection was indicated because of the persistence of a pain while walking and restricted ability to walk 100 m, as well as the installation of a flessum...

This article reviews, through illustrative cases, five rheumatic diseases associated with drug treatments: statins and myopathy, quinolones and tendinopathy, viscosupplementation and pseudoseptic arthritis, diuretics and gout, barbiturates and adhesive capsulitis. Due to the rarity of such cases, we lack validated therapeutic recommendations. Announcement to the adverse drug reaction reporting system is the best way to enhance our knowledge and to improve the public health.

A 70-year-old woman with a history of knee osteoarthritis was admitted for acute arthritis 9 days after a second intraarticular injection of sodium hyaluronan (Ostenil). The joint fluid was purulent, with no crystals, and laboratory tests showed marked inflammation, leading to antibiotic treatment for suspected septic arthritis. Incapacitating symptoms persisted, prompting surgical lavage of the knee, which failed to relieve the severe pain. The persistent symptoms and negative results of joint fluid and blood cultures led to discontinuation of the antibiotic therapy after 10 days...

Hyaluronans are used widely in the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee. Three commercial hyaluronan preparations currently are available in the United States: sodium hyaluronate (Hyalgan), sodium hyaluronate (Supartz), and hylan G-F 20 (Synvisc). Although the sodium hyaluronates are derived naturally, hylan is chemically modified to increase its molecular weight. All three products have been shown to be well tolerated in clinical trials, however, there have been reports in the literature of pseudoseptic reactions, or severe acute inflammatory reactions, after injections with hylan...

Hypomagnesemia has been associated with deposition of calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate crystals in articular structures, causing pseudogout, also known as calcic gout. Occasionally, pseudogout may mimic septic arthritis; this "pseudoseptic" attack may be of especial concern in the immunocompromised host, such as transplant recipient patients, who may be indeed at risk of developing septic arthritis. We report the cases of two patients in whom pseudogout developed after liver transplantation. Synovial fluid appearance and leukocyte counting in synovial fluid mimicked septic arthritis, but calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate crystals were observed...
