Septic arthritis is a bacterial infection of the joints that transmitted directly or hematogenously. It is an orthopedic emergency requiring urgent diagnosis and treatment due to serious mortality and morbidity. It is important to make a definitive diagnosis as soon as possible and to give appropriate treatment. Treatment is also possible with arthroscopic or open irrigation of the joint, repeated irrigation with the needle and parenteral antibiotic therapy. The way of surgical treatment can vary depending on the surgeon`s experience.
