Which conditions are associated with pyarthrosis
Other than joint sepsis, which conditions are associated with a group 3 fluid (pyarthrosis)?
When a group 3 fluid is discovered, septic arthritis must be assumed until proved otherwise by synovial fluid culture.
A few disorders may cause noninfectious pyarthrosis, sometimes referred to as joint pseudosepsis.
• Crystal: gout more commonly than pseudogout.
• Reactive arthritis.
• Rheumatoid arthritis.
