Septic arthritis of the knee due to Pantoeaagglomerans: look for the thorn

Koester, Tobias; Kusano, Taro; Eijer, Henk; Escher, Robert; Waldegg, Gabriel

We report on a patient with septic arthritis of the knee with Pantoea agglomerans after a penetrating black locust thorn injury. Antibiotics alone or in combination with an arthroscopy may be insufficient for achieving source control. Accurate medical history and open debridement with a search for a thorn fragment are key to successful treatment.
