The bacterium Hemophilus influenza, also known as the Pfeiffer bacillus, is generally regarded as a disease of infancy and early childhood. An occurrence in adulthood is rare. A 43-year-old woman developed septic arthritis of more than one joint caused by Hemophilus influenza. The infrequency of this infection and the degree of difficulty in diagnosis is confirmed by a review of the literature.
