Alpha-toxin and gamma-toxin jointly promote Staphylococcus aureus virulence in murine septic arthritis. (1/959)

Septic arthritis is a common and feared complication of staphylococcal infections. Staphylococcus aureus produces a number of potential virulence factors including certain adhesins and enterotoxins. In this study we have assessed the roles of cytolytic toxins in the development of septic arthritis by inoculating mice with S. aureus wild-type strain 8325-4 or isogenic mutants differing in the expression of alpha-, beta-, and gamma-toxin production patterns. Mice inoculated with either an alpha- or beta-toxin mutant showed degrees of inflammation, joint damage, and weight decrease similar to wild-type-inoculated mice. In contrast, mice inoculated with either double (alpha- and gamma-toxin-deficient)- or triple (alpha-, beta-, and gamma-toxin-deficient)-mutant S. aureus strains showed lower frequency and severity of arthritis, measured both clinically and histologically, than mice inoculated with the wild-type strain. We conclude that simultaneous production of alpha- and gamma-toxin is a virulence factor in S. aureus arthritis.  (+info)

Genetic control of experimental lyme arthritis in the absence of specific immunity. (2/959)

Host genetics play an important role in determining resistance or susceptibility to experimental Lyme arthritis. While specific immunity appears to regulate disease resolution, innate immunity appears to regulate disease severity. Intradermal infection with Borrelia burgdorferi yields severe arthritis in C3H/He (C3H) mice but only minimal arthritis in BALB/c mice. Intradermal infection of immunodeficient C3H SCID mice also results in severe arthritis, but arthritis of only moderate severity in BALB/c SCID mice. In the present study, we examined immunodeficient recombinase-activating gene-knockout (RAG-1(-/-)) (RAG-) mice from resistant C57BL/6 (B6) and DBA/2 (DBA) mouse strains. B. burgdorferi-infected B6 RAG- and DBA RAG- mice had little or no ankle swelling, a low occurrence of inflammatory infiltrates in tibiotarsal joints, and low arthritis severity scores in comparison to RAG+ and RAG- BALB/c or C3H mice. Few differences in spirochete DNA levels in ankles of resistant and susceptible RAG- mice were seen. These data suggest that resistance to arthritis development following B. burgdorferi infection is not necessarily dependent on an acquired immune response and can occur despite the presence of high spirochete burden. Thus, genes expressed outside the specific immune response can be central regulators of experimental arthritis.  (+info)

Osteonecrosis of the hip in sickle-cell disease associated with tuberculous arthritis. A review of 15 cases. (3/959)

We report a study of 15 cases of tuberculous hips with sickle-cell disease who presented during 1991-1993. Although the osteonecrosis was long-standing, biopsy was nearly always required to reveal the more recent tuberculous infection. Management consisted of 6 months of anti-tuberculous chemotherapy with appropriate palliative surgery 5-8 weeks after the start of drug treatment. The operative techniques which we used are described. The results were good both post-operatively, and in 12 patients followed-up at an average of 3 years. We recommend this combined management for the treatment of secondary tuberculous infections of hips previously damaged by sickle-cell disease.  (+info)

Longitudinal and cross-sectional variability in markers of joint metabolism in patients with knee pain and articular cartilage abnormalities. (4/959)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the within- and between-patient variability in the concentrations of synovial fluid, serum and urine markers of joint tissue metabolism in a cohort of patients with knee pain and cartilage changes consistent with early-stage knee osteoarthritis. DESIGN: Samples of synovial fluid, serum, and urine were obtained from 52 patients on eight different occasions during 1 year, as part of a clinical trial in patients with cartilage abnormalities and knee pain. In joint fluid, aggrecan fragments were quantified by dye precipitation and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), and matrix metalloproteinases-1 and -3, and tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases-1 by sandwich ELISAs. In serum, keratan sulfate was quantified by ELISA. Type I collagen N-telopeptide cross-links in urine were determined by ELISA. RESULTS: The degree of cross-sectional variability in marker concentrations did not vary between the different sampling occasions, and did not differ between the periods of weeks 0 (baseline), 1-4 (treatment) and 13-26 (follow-up). Both between-patient and within-patient coefficients of variation varied for markers in different body fluid compartments, with the lowest variability for serum keratan sulfate, followed by urine type I collagen N-telopeptide crosslinks, and the highest for synovial fluid markers. For synovial fluid, aggrecan fragments showed the least variability, and matrix metalloproteinases the highest. One patient with septic arthritis showed a fivefold peak increase in joint fluid aggrecan fragment concentrations, while the concentration of matrix metalloproteinase-3 increased 100-fold. CONCLUSIONS: Molecular markers of joint tissue metabolism have been suggested as, for example, outcome measures for clinical trials of disease-modifying drugs in osteoarthritis. This report is the first to present data on between- and within-patient variability for such molecular markers in three different body fluid compartments in stable cohort of patients. The availability of such data enables calculations to determine the number of patients needed in prospective studies using these markers as outcome measures.  (+info)

IL-1beta, IL-6 and TNF-alpha in synovial fluid of patients with non-gonococcal septic arthritis. (5/959)

Interleukin-1 beta (IL-1beta), interleukin-6 (IL-6) and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) are the main proinflammatory cytokines responsible for the inflammatory process and cartilage destruction of inflammatory arthropathies. The present study sequentially measured the concentrations of these cytokines and their proportions of detectable levels in the synovial fluid (SF) of 23 patients with non-gonococcal (GC) septic arthritis before and after treatment. Persistently high concentrations and proportions of IL-6 and TNF-alpha were found up to day 7 of treatment, while SF IL-1beta concentration declined significantly after day 7 (p = 0.036). SF IL-1beta and TNF-alpha correlated with each other significantly and with SF WBC counts (p < 0.01). Positive correlations between SF IL-1beta concentration and joint effusion (p < 0.01) and between SF TNF-alpha concentration and joint tenderness (p < 0.001) were observed. SF IL-1beta and TNF-alpha were significantly higher in patients with local complications of septic arthritis. In conclusion, high levels of IL-1beta, IL-6 and TNF-alpha were detected in SF of patients with non-GC septic arthritis. Only IL-1beta decreased significantly after day 7 of treatment, but IL-6 and TNF-alpha concentrations were persistently high. SF IL-1beta and TNF-alpha may be useful in predicting the outcome and complications of patients with this disease.  (+info)

Slipped capital femoral epiphysis after septic arthritis of the hip in an adolescent: report of a case. (6/959)

Septic arthritis of the hip must be managed promptly to avoid the serious complications associated with the condition. In the case reported here, the diagnosis was delayed and was complicated by a slipped capital femoral epiphysis. The patient, an adolescent boy previously in good health, presented with a 2-week history of hip pain and systemic illness. Septic arthritis was diagnosed and was managed by incision and drainage and antibiotic therapy. Two weeks later he presented with a subcutaneous abscess and a slipped capital femoral epiphysis, which was pinned in situ. There was a 2.5-cm leg-length discrepancy. Avascular necrosis of the femoral head subsequently developed leaving the boy with a permanent disability.  (+info)

Gamma interferon and interleukin-10 gene expression in synovial tissues from patients with early stages of Chlamydia-associated arthritis and undifferentiated oligoarthritis and from healthy volunteers. (7/959)

Genetically determined differences in interleukin-10 (IL-10) and gamma interferon (IFN-gamma) responses in mice correlate with clearance of Chlamydia pneumonitis infection. We measured the synovial expression of IL-10 and IFN-gamma and additional cytokine genes in patients who had recent-onset Chlamydia-associated arthritis (Chl-AA). IL-10 and IFN-gamma mRNA were relatively abundant in recent-onset Chl-AA.  (+info)

Development of lyme arthritis in mice deficient in inducible nitric oxide synthase. (8/959)

Nitric oxide (NO) is a powerful antimicrobial agent and an important regulatory molecule of the innate immune response. To determine if NO has a role in experimental Lyme disease, arthritis-resistant DBA/2J and arthritis-susceptible C3H/HeJ mice were bred to be genetically deficient for inducible NO synthase (iNOS). Following footpad injection of Borrelia burgdorferi, arthritis was similar between iNOS-deficient and control animals regardless of their genetic background. Histologic examination and arthritis severity scores of ankles revealed no differences in arthritis development between iNOS-deficient and control animals. Despite being deficient in a key antimicrobial agent, iNOS-deficient mice had tissue levels of B. burgdorferi similar to those in control mice. Thus, NO does not have a critical role in susceptibility to Lyme arthritis through tissue damage via an overexuberant inflammatory response, nor is it required in resistance through the clearance of spirochetes from tissues.  (+info)

Infectious arthritis is a painful swelling in the joints caused by a bacterial, viral, or fungal infection. Infectious arthritis usually results from infectious organisms in the bloodstream travelling to and infecting a joint. Organisms can also enter the body through open wounds to reach a joint. Fungal infections develop more slowly and are typically less severe than bacterial infections.. Risk factors for infectious arthritis include having underlying health conditions that weaken the immune system, such as cancer, diabetes, and HIV/AIDS, or having joint damage. The elderly and very young are also at increased risk. Symptoms of infectious arthritis include severe pain in the affected joint or joints, fever, chills, impaired mobility, joint swelling, fatigue, and redness or warmth of the joint. Most often, only one joint is affected. The knee is the joint most frequently affected by infectious arthritis. Infectious arthritis is diagnosed by taking a sample of the joint fluid. This fluid will ...

In the current study, a three-stage procedure with BT was used to treat six patients with SCJ infectious arthritis. The infection was controlled and the wound healed after the SCJ debridement. Following the BT, the clavicle length was restored using distraction osteogenesis. The six patients then underwent tendon autograft reconstruction of the SCJ without internal fixation. The mean follow-up was 16 months. It was found that only three patients were positive for oxacillin-sensitive S. aureus preoperatively. This indicates that the SCJ infection might be caused by other organisms. More experiments would be needed to elucidate the etiology. The DASH scores decreased and the Constant scores improved remarkably after the surgery. All the patients were satisfied with the therapeutic effect. No complications occurred postoperatively. These results suggest that the three-stage procedure with BT is effective and safe for treating patients with SCJ infectious arthritis.. An increasing number of studies ...

Infectious arthritis (intense pain in a joint due to infection) - Definition, most common Reasons and Complications. Symptoms, Diagnostics and Treatment Options.
Viral infections are responsible for approximately 1% of all cases of infectious arthritis. These infections include parvovirus B19, HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, hepatitis E, human T-lymphotrophic virus type-1, and arboviruses. Infectious arthritis can last for hours or days and is marked by pain, heat, rash, redness, and swelling. Some people, particularly the elderly, will experience fever and chills. Most infectious arthritis cases involve only one joint and more than half of these affect the knee. It can also affect the wrists, ankles, shoulders, hips, and spine.. According to Everyday Health, infectious arthritis occurs when germs invade the joint due to:. ...
Animal models, which mimic human disease, are invaluable tools for understanding the mechanisms of disease pathogenesis and development of treatment strategies. In particular, animal models play important roles in the area of infectious arthritis. Alphaviruses, including Ross River virus (RRV), onyong-nyong virus, chikungunya virus (CHIKV), mayaro virus, Semliki Forest virus and sindbis virus, are globally distributed and cause transient illness characterized by fever, rash, myalgia, arthralgia and arthritis in humans. Severe forms of the disease result in chronic incapacitating arthralgia and arthritis. The mechanisms of how these viruses cause musculoskeletal disease are ill defined. In recent years, the use of a mouse model for RRV-induced disease has assisted in unraveling the pathobiology of infection and in discovering novel drugs to ameliorate disease. RRV as an infection model has the potential to provide key insights into such disease processes, particularly as many viruses, other than ...
If your physician suspects that you may have an infectious arthritic joint they will require a sample of the fluid which is removed with a sterile needle as soon as possible.. This fluid will be examined for white blood cells as well as cultured for bacteria and other organisms. In this way the doctor can recommend a treatment protocol which is specifically aimed at the organisms which are causing your infection.. Doctors will usually order blood tests as well to determine whether or not the individual also has it in their bloodstream. Sputum culture, spinal fluid culture and urine culture may also be collected looking for bacteria in order to determine the source of the infection.. The physician may or may not want x-rays of the involved joint because they are not diagnostic of an acute infection. However they can also pick up other conditions that are under consideration, such as fractures.. Any abnormalities in the early stages of infectious arthritis are limited to the soft tissue will not ...

Infection complicates 1-4% of total joint replacements. The majority of infections are acquired intraoperatively or immediately postoperatively as a result of wound breakdown or infection; less commonly, these joint infections develop later after joint replacement and are the result of hematogenous spread or direct inoculation. The presentation may be acute, with fever, pain, and local signs of inflammation, especially in infections due to S. aureus, pyogenic streptococci, and enteric bacilli. Alternatively, infection may persist for months or years without causing constitutional symptoms when less virulent organisms, such as coagulase-negative staphylococci or diphtheroids, are involved. Such indolent infections usually are acquired during joint implantation and are discovered during evaluation of chronic unexplained pain or after a radiograph shows loosening of the prosthesis; the erythrocyte sedimentation rate and ...

Septic arthritis in dogs (infectious arthritis) is a specific type of inflammatory arthropathy triggered by an infective agent, more often than not - bacteria.
Acute septic arthritis of childhood is a potentially devastating disease that causes permanent disability and can result in death. Traditional treatment consists of a prolonged course of intravenous antibiotics combined with aggressive surgery. However, this approach is challenged by trials showing satisfactory outcomes with shorter treatment and less invasive surgery. Diagnostic arthrocentesis alone and an antibiotic for a fortnight, including initial intravenous administration for 2-4 days, suffice in most non-neonatal cases. A good penetrating agent, such as clindamycin or a first-generation cephalosporin, exceptionally high doses, and administration four times a day are probably key factors. If the symptoms and signs subside within a few days, and the serum C-reactive protein level drops below 20 mg/l, the antibiotic can usually be safely discontinued. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus is a concern, but fortunately, most strains have retained susceptibility to clindamycin. The ...

Not everyone will get arthritis, but those who do will experience joint pain, swelling, stiffness, loss of motion and an impact on their activities of daily living. Orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Bradley Fink, says arthritis is a disease of the joints, cartilage and tissues surrounding the joints. There are different types arthritis, including metabolic/inflammatory arthritis such as rheumatoid and gout, non-inflammatory arthritis such as degenerative arthritis, post infectious arthritis and post traumatic arthritis.. Dr. Fink says many patients respond well to anti-inflammatory medications, corticosteroid and hylauronic acid injections, bracing, and physical therapy. Patients can also try using a cane, crutch or walker to relieve pressure from the affected joint. If all else fails, surgery may be an option. He adds that there are many procedures available which can help. The procedure of choice depends on the type and location of the arthritis, physical demands of the patient and severity of the ...

Prior to March, 1932, only symptomatic measures were available for the treatment of gonococcal arthritis. At that time, it was observed during a course of fever therapy for syphilis that the gonococcal arthritis also present had improved.1 Further studies confirmed this original observation and fever became the accepted form of therapy. Several years later the sulfonamides were introduced and most recently penicillin became available. Since these three methods of treatment have received extensive trial at the Gallinger Municipal Hospital, it appeared worthwhile to review these cases. They have been analyzed in the present paper, with particular reference to the efficacy ...
Another important part of a treatment program is a well-balanced diet. Along with exercise, a well-balanced diet helps people manage their body weight and stay healthy. Weight control is important to people who have arthritis because extra weight puts extra pressure on some joints and can aggravate many types of arthritis. Diet is especially important for people who have gout. People with gout should avoid alcohol and foods that are high in purines, such as organ meats (liver, kidney), sardines, anchovies, and gravy.. Medications. A variety of medications are used to treat rheumatic diseases. The type of medication depends on the rheumatic disease and on the individual patient. At this time, the medications used to treat most rheumatic diseases do not provide a cure, but rather limit the symptoms of the disease. The one exception is treatments for infectious arthritis. If caught early enough, arthritis associated with an infection (such as Lyme disease) can usually be cured with antibiotics. ...

Streptococcus dysgalactiae is a gram positive, beta-haemolytic, coccal bacterium belonging to the family Streptococcaceae. It is capable of infecting both humans and animals, but is most frequently encountered as a commensal of the alimentary tract, genital tract, or less commonly, as a part of the skin flora. The clinical manifestations in human disease range from superficial skin-infections and tonsillitis, to severe necrotising fasciitis and bacteraemia. The incidence of invasive disease has been reported to be rising. Several different animal species are susceptible to infection by S.dysgalactiae, but bovine mastitis and infectious arthritis in lambs (joint ill) have been most frequently reported. Streptococcus dysgalactiae is currently divided into the subspecies Streptococcus dysgalactiae subspecies equisimilis (SDSE) and Streptococcus dysgalactiae subspecies dysgalactiae (SDSD); the former mostly associated with human disease, and the latter almost exclusively encountered in veterinary ...

Acute hematogenous bone and joint infections, septic arthritis, and osteomyelitis with or without adjacent septic arthritis, are rare among children in a standard Western setting, but still potentially devastating diseases, as even deaths have been reported recently. Foir this reason, and in part due to historical reasons, the treatment has comprised of months-long courses of antibiotics, started intravenously for at least a week, and aggressive surgery. Recent prospective and randomized trials have shown that a 2-4-day parenteral course, completed orally to a total duration of 10-14 days for septic arthritis and of 3 weeks for osteomyelitis, heals the great majority of cases, provided large-enough doses of a well-absorbing antibiotic, and a four-times-daily (qid) regimen is used. Staphylococcus aureus - the most common causative agent in osteoarticular infections - is the primary target for treatment. For methicillin-susceptible strains, first-generation cephalosporins, clindamycin, and ...
We introduced criteria for the clinical diagnosis of dialysis-related amyloidosis (DRA) from the Amyloidosis Research Group study supported by a Grant-in-Aid from the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare of Japan. DRA exhibits various kinds of bone articular lesions, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, destructive spondyloarthropathy, spinal canal stenosis, and joint pains. These bone articular lesions, excluding destructive spondyloarthropathy, are observed in non-dialysis patients or dialysis patients without DRA. We carefully compared these lesions between DRA and non-DRA patients and summarized the differences between them. The incidence age, male to female ratio, and coincidence rate were distinct between these groups of patients. Biopsies from bone articular lesions are invasive and burdensome for dialysis patients; therefore, a precise clinical diagnosis is required for DRA. We discussed the validity and availability of our proposed criteria.

Aim - To highlight the 2.6 years follow up of reconstruction of Sequelae of Septic Arthritis of six Paediatric Hips Background- The Sequelae of paediatric hip septic arthritis is complex and diverse. The ultimate purpose of the management of these Sequelae is to provide a stable hip with minimum loss of movements.. Material & Methods: Case Reports - All six cases were male (average age 6.3 years) with definite past history suggestive of infective pathology of hips during infancy. All were treated earlier with incision drainage of abscess around affected hips. All were presented with difficulty in walking with limb shortening. Radiologically, all were Choi Type III B or Forlin Milani type 2A. After initial tibial skeletal traction for mean 2.3 weeks, Y - osteotomy of proximal femur was performed with fixation of remnant of head located in acetabulum with medial arm of this Y by K- wire with POP hip spica for 12 weeks.. Results: Average follow up was 3.6 years. Average preop shortening was 2.7 cm ...

A 14-year-old boy presented to another hospital with a clinical picture of septic arthritis. After aspiration of purulent material from the joint, empiric antibiotic treatment was initiated and an arthrotomy was performed. Antibiotic treatment was then modified to nafcillin according to microbiological sensitivity results of the isolated Staphylococcus aureus as determined by minimal inhibitory concentration testing. One week later purulent drainage recurred and open drainage had to be repeated; an abscess anterior to the joint was noted. Once again the infection failed to resolve, and the patient was transferred to our institution where a third arthrotomy had to be performed. The organism isolated at the first aspiration was reexamined and found to have a minimal bactericidal concentration to minimal inhibitory concentration ratio of 32, implying a tolerant organism. The antibiotic treatment was modified to an antibiotic not subject to the tolerance phenomenon, and the infection resolved without

Arthroscopy has been used routinely for the diagnosis and irrigation of septic arthritis of the knee and other joints, and had become the gold standard of care, offering visualisation washout and adequate debridement of the whole joint. Used routinely in the knee, shoulder, elbow and ankle, it strikes us as odd that it isnt standard of care in the adult hip at least. Although arthroscopy has been used in childhood knee septic arthritis (SA), it has not replaced open arthrotomy in the treatment of childhood hip SA, mostly due to the requirement for traction and utilisation of lateral-sided portals. This makes standard hip arthroscopy difficult to perform in children. Previous authors have described single portal techniques without traction, but there are obvious advantages to washing out a joint with dual portals. These authors from San Diego, California (USA) describe a medial-based portal and assessed its safety and efficacy in accessing the hip joint in children.1 The structures at risk ...
Referring a Septic Joint. Horses with synovial sepsis represent a significant portion of our referred orthopaedic caseload. Where there is a wound or other traumatic injury adjacent to joints or other synovial structures, it is safer and much better for the horses future, to assume that the synovial cavity is involved and to treat the case appropriately from the start, rather than to discover synovial sepsis after a period of time has been allowed to elapse. It is well recognised that the prognosis for recovery is dramatically reduced when synovial sepsis is allowed to become established..

Septic arthritis is treated with antibiotics. Youll normally need to stay in hospital for at least two weeks to have antibiotics given to you directly into a vein (intravenously). You may need to rest in bed for a few days to take pressure off the affected joint. Youll be given medication to relieve the pain.. You might also have the fluid drained from your infected joint using a needle and syringe, or during a procedure called an arthroscopy.. This is where a fine, metal tube is inserted through a small cut made near the affected joint. This will normally be done by an orthopaedic surgeon.. After you finish the course of intravenous antibiotics, youll probably need to take antibiotic tablets at home for at least another four weeks.. You should completely recover after antibiotic treatment, although some people still experience persistent limited movement in the affected joint.. ...

This study indicates that SAA is elevated in the blood and SF of horses with SCS but not in horses with non-septic joint pathology or normal joints. SAA in blood and SF had moderate-to-high sensitivity and specificity for differentiating horses with SCS from horses with NSISP or horses with normal synovial structures in the authors population of horses. Therefore, SF and blood SAA could be used to aid diagnosis of SCS. On the contrary, levels of D-lactate were not useful for diagnosis of SCS.. Elevation of SF SAA in horses with SCS has been reported previously in a limited number of clinical9 and experimental10 cases of septic arthritis, with the study presented here being the first report on a large number of clinical cases. This study also demonstrates that blood SAA increases significantly in horses with SCS, in agreement with Ludwig and others,10 and that blood and SF concentrations of SAA are moderately correlated in horses. The majority of equine SAA is synthesised in the liver and ...
