Abstract

Septic sacroiliitis is an uncommon joint infection and the diagnosis is often delayed. We present the first case of a septic arthritis of the shoulder and of the sacroiliac joint in a woman affected by systemic sclerosis, and we reviewed the medical literature since 1997 to 2008 on septic sacroiliitis with a specific microbiological diagnosis other than Mycobacteria and Brucella species.Evidence shows that antibiotic therapy should be continued until full clinical and radiological resolution is achieved.
