Pseudosepsis that is caused by viscosupple- mentation with hylan is associated with certain features (1-3), which include (1) intra-articular knee effusion with severe pain, most often within 24 and 72 h of administration; (2) requirement for two or three injections prior to the development of immune sensitization; (3) absence of infectious agents and calcium pyrophosphate crystals in the synovial fluid aspirate; (4) possibility of elevated mononuclear cell levels (majority of macrophages, infrequent neutrophils, and increased eosinophils) in the synovial fluid; and (5) disease prognosis that is not self-limiting and that requires treatment in nearly all cases (arthrocentesis, intra-articular steroid injection
, and NSAIDs).
