Example text

The blood stream is invaded, perhaps from a minor skin abrasion, a boil or – in the newborn – from an infected umbilical cord. In adults the source of infection may be a urethral catheter, an arterial line or a dirty needle and syringe. In children the organisms usually settle in the vascular metaphysis of a long bone, most often at the proximal or distal end of the femur or the proximal end of the tibia. Predilection for this site has traditionally been attributed to the fact that the non-anastomosing terminal branches of the nutrient artery in that area twist back in hairpin loops before entering the venous network, causing the relative vascular stasis and consequent lowered oxygen tension that might favour bacterial colonization.

It usually appears in the fourth or fifth decade. Juvenile idiopathic arthritis systemic connective-tissue diseases fibromyalgia ■■ ■■ Stage 1: preclinical: well before RA becomes clinically apparent the immune pathology is already beginning. Raised erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), C-reactive protein (CRP) and rheumatoid factor (RF) may be detectable years before the first diagnosis. Stage 2: synovitis: synovial membrane becomes inflamed and thickened, giving rise to a cellrich effusion. Although painful and swollen, the joints and tendons are still intact and the disorder is potentially reversible.

Growth disturbance: physeal damage may result in shortening or deformity. Ankylosis: if articular cartilage is eroded, healing may lead to ankylosis. Imaging X-rays may show soft-tissue swelling, widening of the joint space (due to the effusion) and periarticular osteoporosis during the first 2 weeks of bacterial arthritis. Later, when the articular cartilage is attacked, the ‘joint space’ is narrowed. In advanced cases there are signs of bone destruction. Radionuclide imaging and MRI are helpful for detecting signs in difficult sites such as the sternoclavicular and sacroiliac joints.
