Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This is believed to be the first report of a case of septic arthritis secondary to intra-articular injection caused by Corynebacterium pseudodiphtheriticum, a skin commensal microorganism. Review of the literature highlights the rarity of this pathogen in osteoarticular infections and a potential for delayed diagnosis and inadequate treatment due to subtle initial presentation.
