Acute septic arthritis of shoulder joint caused by Aeromonas veronii biotype sobria

Acute septic arthritis of shoulder joint caused by Aeromonas veronii biotype sobria We present the case of a 91-year-old woman who presented with a 2‑day history of progressive pain and immobility of the right shoulder joint after fever of unknown etiology. Aeromonas sobria was isolated from a culture of purulent synovial fluid. The clinical condition gradually improved with the application of appropriate antibiotics and no surgical intervention was necessary. This report indicates that acute septic arthritis may result from Aeromonas veronii biotype sobria infections in healthy people. This case is contrary to the previous reports due to the absence of obvious risk factors. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Der Orthopäde Springer Journals

Abstract

We present the case of a 91-year-old woman who presented with a 2‑day history of progressive pain and immobility of the right shoulder joint after fever of unknown etiology. Aeromonas sobria was isolated from a culture of purulent synovial fluid. The clinical condition gradually improved with the application of appropriate antibiotics and no surgical intervention was necessary. This report indicates that acute septic arthritis may result from Aeromonas veronii biotype sobria infections in healthy people. This case is contrary to the previous reports due to the absence of obvious risk factors.
