Resumen

PEREZ, Carla et al. Escherichia vulneris etiologic agent of septic arthritis in a child. Rev. chil. infectol. [online]. 2018, vol.35, n.1, pp.80-82. ISSN 0716-1018.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/s0716-10182018000100080.

Escherichia vulneris is a gram-negative bacillus that belongs to the family Enterobacteriaceae, with a questioned pathogenic role. However, it has been confirmed as the cause of wound infections. We report the case of a 12-year-old girl, previously healthy, with a diagnosis of septic arthritis of the right knee, secondary to a spinal lesion. Escherichia vulneris, an unusual etiology of septic arthritis in children, was isolated in the joint fluid. This case is one of the first cases of septic arthritis due to E. vulneris, secondary to a plant-derived foreign body in a child, described in the medical literature. The importance of performing the microbiological study of joint fluid in patients with septic arthritis caused by a foreign body of plant-derived origin is emphasized.
