Symphysis pubis septic arthritis

Discussion:

The findings are consistent with septic arthritis of the pubic symphysis, with osteomyelitis of the adjacent pubic bones.

Septic arthritis in adults is usually due to Staphylococcus aureus infection, however gonorrhea, tuberculosis, brucellosis and Salmonella may also be the cause. Septic arthritis may involve any joint, commonly occurring in knee and hip in adults.
