Pyogenic arthritis

sup·pu·ra·tive ar·thri·tis

acute inflammation of synovial membranes, with purulent effusion into a joint, due to bacterial infection; the usual route of infection is hemic to the synovial tissue, causing destruction of the articular cartilage; may become chronic, with sinus formation, osteomyelitis, deformity, and disability.

bacterial arthritis

An acute arthropathy characterised by painful swelling of a joint, fever, increased WBCs, local heat and inability to move the joint. Early, the joint is distended with pus, which may be accompanied by aseptic necrosis of subchondral bone; if untreated, the synovial space may be replaced by granulation tissue and fibrosis, resulting in bony ankylosis.

Antibiotics were discontinued given that these findings were inconsistent with pyogenic arthritis, and she was improving clinically.
They also recognized a range of associated disorders, including SAPHO syndrome (synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, and osteitis), PAPA syndrome (pyogenic arthritis, pyoderma gangrenosum, and acne), and PASH (pyoderma gangrenosum, acne, and hidradenitis suppurativa).

Certain syndromes, in which HS is a part of the clinical picture, are precisely defined, for example, pyogenic arthritis, pyodermia gangrenosum, acne and hidradenitis suppurativa (PAPASH) "PASH", Pyogenic Arthritis, Pyoderma gangrenosum and Acne (PAPA) and others have been noted earlier, too.

SAIDs presenting with nonbacterial pyogenic manifestations include pyogenic arthritis, pyoderma gangrenosum and acne (PAPA) syndrome, deficiency of the IL-1-receptor antagonist, deficiency of the IL-36 receptor antagonist, Majeed syndrome, and chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis.
To date, there are twelve known MAISs: familial Mediterranean fever (FMF); tumor necrosis factor receptor-associated periodic syndrome (TRAPS); cryopyrin-associated periodic syndrome (CAPS), a group which includes familial cold urticaria syndrome (FCAS), Muckle-Wells syndrome (MWS), and chronic infantile neurological cutaneous articular (CINCA) syndrome; mevalonate kinase deficiency (MKD); NLRP12-associated autoinflammatory disorder (NLRP12AD); granulomatous MAISs which include Blau syndrome (BS) and early-onset sarcoidosis (EOS); and, finally, the hereditary pyogenic disorders including PAPA (pyogenic arthritis, pyoderma gangrenosum, and acne) syndrome, Majeed syndrome (MS), and deficiency of the IL-1 receptor antagonist (DIRA).
Familial cases of SAPHO syndrome have been described (15,16); however, genetic analyses fail to demonstrate variations in the coding regions or splice sites of genes known to cause auto-inflammatory bone disorders (e.g., Majeed syndrome, murine CRMO and cherubism), other skin inflammatory disorders (e.g., PAPA syndrome: pyogenic arthritis, pyoderma gangrenosum, and acne), and mutations in NADPH oxidase (NCF4 gene).
