Abstract

Although most joint pain in adolescents is secondary to injury, inflammatory arthritis, mechanical problems, and other causes, infectious causes of arthritis should always be considered. Infections may cause arthritis by direct infection, reactive
disease, or immune-mediated mechanisms. This chapter reviews common infectious causes of arthritis and also recognizes the difficulties in distinguishing categories.
