Monoarthritis remains a diagnostic challenge in Rheumatology and Orthopedics. The author reports a case of septic arthritis due to Streptococcus bovis after several episodes of joint effusion treated with hyaluronic acid (Hylan G-F 20) and methylprednisolone acetate in a 69-year-old patient with liver cirrhosis due to hepatitis C virus. Neither adenoma of the colon nor endocarditis was present. The diagnostic possibilities for this case of monoarthritis, the pathologies related to the microorganism of interest to the rheumatologist, and the possible involvement of joint reaction to hyaluronic acid as a predisposing factor to joint effusion are discussed.
