1/2. Septic arthritis secondary to fusobacterium necrophorum in a 4-year-old girl: case report and review of the literature.

    We report an unusual case of septic arthritis in a 4-year-old child caused by fusobacterium necrophorum. In spite of aggressive parenteral antibiotic therapy with ampicillin-sulbactam after surgical drainage, disease recurred, requiring additional arthrotomies. The infection was eventually eradicated with parenteral meropenem and clindamycin, and additional surgical drainage.

2/2. Fusobacterium septic arthritis of the sternoclavicular joint.

    We describe a case of septic arthritis of the sternoclavicular joint caused by Fusobacterium in an otherwise healthy young man. The Fusobacterium had morphologic features most in keeping with Fusobacterium (F.) necrophorum, which was a common organism in sternoclavicular septic arthritis in the preantibiotic era. To our knowledge this is the first reported case of a fusobacterium sternoclavicular joint infection in the antibiotic era. This case should lead to heightened awareness of sternoclavicular joint infection and fusobacterium joint infection in the healthy host.
