Abstract

The categorization in four classes of association between infection and arthritis (namely infective, post-infective, reactive and idiopathic) seems nowadays to be inadequate to cover the extensive field of interactions between infectious agents and host response resulting in arthritis. This paper is a synthetic review of the subject with particular reference to pathogenetic mechanisms in children. An effort has been accomplished, on the basis of the most recent literature, to define the respective roles of the microbial aggression and the host response in a number of conditions: septic arthritis, viral arthritides,
Lyme arthritis, rheumatic fever, Reiter’s syndrome, ankylosing spondylitis and rheumatoid arthritis.

    I cut a arthritic finger while gutting a chicken. The cut was infected to some degree, but the surprising thing was the same thing occurred with another cut finger joint on contact with poultry!
    I suggested to my g.p. that I could slash a few more arthritic joints and contact them with poultry “products”! She did not think it a good idea!!!! Gillian Australia

    continuing……The arthritic swelling considerably reduced when the infection cured. Am I on to something here??
