Septic arthritis is arthritis that is caused by bacteria. It is considered a medical emergency because the condition can cause permanent damage to the joints involved without prompt treatment. Septic arthritis most often affects infants and children under age three, but people who have rheumatoid arthritis, gout, or osteoarthritis are also at an increased risk for developing the condition. Treatment usually involves the use of antibiotics, but the length of treatment will depend on the specific type of bacteria.
