Infectious arthritis - requires timely and adequate treatment
June 1st, 2012
Infectious arthritis - a serious disease of the joints that can occur with severe pain in the joints, fever, chills, redness and swelling of one or more joints and the violation of its functions. Infectious arthritis patient in need of emergency medical care.
What is the specific infectious arthritis and types
Infectious arthritis make up the group-specific joint damage in bacterial, fungal, viral and parasitic diseases. Despite the fact that these arthritis appear on a background of any infection, during their continued and after recovery from the infection caused by arthritis.
There are bacterially-metastatic and toxic-allergic form of the disease. For the first form is characterized by severe loss of one or more joints to the presence of the pathogen in the intraarticular (synovial) fluid. The second form is manifested by inflammation of multiple joints and pain in them without any apparent objective changes. There are also mixed forms of infectious arthritis, affecting many joints and the presence of pathogens in the synovial fluid.
On the origin of specific infectious arthritis can be bacterial (brucellosis, gonorrhea), viral, fungal, parasitic.
Bacterial gonorrheal arthritis and polyarthritis
Gonorrheal arthritis develops in patients with acute and chronic gonorrhea predominantly young. It can be as bacterially-metastatic and toxic-allergic. Often develops an acute inflammation of periarticular bag (synovitis) with serous or purulent exudate, and then the process involved ligaments and tendons.
Onset is usually acute, high fever and pain in many joints, but then the process is usually localized to one joint, often a knee, ankle or wrist joint.
The most characteristic of metastatic drives (lesion of the knee) with acute and subacute. At the same time there are a lot of pain in the affected joint, high fever, severe general condition of the patient. Very quickly develop joint deformity and an inability to bend the knee (flexion contracture), a decrease in volume (atrophy) of the muscles.
Performance of laboratory tests are talking about the activity of the inflammatory process. The liquid taken from the joint cavity by means of puncture revealed gonococci.
If the patient does not receive timely adequate treatment, the articular surfaces of bones are rapidly destroyed, and the function of the joint becomes completely lost.
Toxic-allergic gonorrheal arthritis
What is arthritis - when it hurts everywhere
often with chronic gonorrhea after hypothermia or injury. In this inflammatory process develops in two or three major joints. With proper and timely treatment of the arthritis in most cases, recovery occurs, but may develop chronic gonococcal arthritis and spondylitis (destruction of joints and spine).
Viral, fungal and parasitic arthritis
Viral arthritis sometimes occurs against a background of viral infections can occur at any stage of the disease. For example, arthritis can begin viral hepatitis

. The flu is considered a rare complication of arthritis, for a more typical arthralgia - pain in the joints

Fungal arthritis occur in fungal infections such as actinomycosis, blastomycosis, coccidiosis and others. The joint is an infectious agent is usually transferred from the nearby, fungus affected bone. In some cases, fungal infections (eg, actinomycosis) spread through the bloodstream, so may be affected joints and bones, located far from the main source of infection.
All fungal infections osteoarticular apparatus characterized by the formation of fistulas (exits to the surface of the body) and long-term relapsing course.
Treatment should be comprehensive, and it is better to start in the hospital, especially if arthritis runs hard. Assigned to a specific treatment. Depending on the cause of the disease, it is antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal or antiparasitic therapy.
Appointed as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that reduce inflammation and pain, desensitizing therapy (rented allergic disposition), for the rest of the joint.
