The spectrum of septic hip arthritis in neonates, a study of 12 children

Author(s): Dr. Rohan Parwani
Abstract: Septic arthritis is a common reason for persistent sepsis in neonates. It is often a result of systemic sepsis. While the treatment is clear in older children, with majority of them requiring surgical intervention, the high risk of anesthesia in small children makes surgical intervention tricky. We studied various parameters in 12 children that presented to us for management of septic arthritis. We found that a timely surgical intervention, even if there is a mild effusion leads to a shorter IV antibiotic requirement and early return of motion.
