Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PA) is frequently responsible for severe acute iatrogenic infection, particularly in critically ill or immunocompromised patients, and sometimes after articular implant surgery. Native joint infection with PA has been described in intravenous drug users, but apart from those, it remains a rare condition with only few cases described, and a probably poorest outcome than arthritis due to Staphylococcus aureus.
