We report a retrospective review of 78 patients managed in three surgery units and one rheuma- tology unit. Management practices varied between the units. Joint aspiration was proposed for all patients seen by rheumatologists. Certain surgeons proposed arthroscopy systematically at admission while others preferred a more selec- tive approach. Arthroscopic wash-out was proposed as the first-line procedure for only 33 patients. All were given systemic antibiotics using a variety of protocols.
