Differentiation between septic arthritis and transient synovitis of the hip in children with clinical prediction algorithms.

Although the use of a clinical prediction algorithm to differentiate between septic arthritis and transient synovitis may have improved the utility of existing technology and medical care to facilitate the diagnosis at the institution at which the algorithm originated, application of the algorithm does not appear to be valid at other institutions.

Differentiating between septic arthritis and transient synovitis of the hip in children: an evidence-based clinical prediction algorithm.

This study retrospectively reviewed the cases of children who were evaluated at a major tertiary-care children's hospital between 1979 and 1996 and constructed a set of independent multivariate predictors that had excellent diagnostic performance in differentiating between septic arthritis and transient synovitis of the hip in children.

Validation of a clinical prediction rule for the differentiation between septic arthritis and transient synovitis of the hip in children.

The previously published clinical prediction rule for the differentiation between septic arthritis and transient synovitis of the hip in children demonstrated diminished, but nevertheless very good, diagnostic performance in a new patient population.

Acute septic arthritis of the hip joint in infancy and childhood.

Patients whose hips were infected with Staphylococcus aureus bacteria were more likely to have a poor prognosis than those whose hips was infected with non-S.

The painful hip: evaluation of criteria for clinical decision-making

Investigation of painful hips in children, based on hip ultrasound, body temperature, ESR and CRP, may allow cases for hip joint aspiration to be selected efficiently and may reduce the number of radiographs and hospital admissions.

Septic Arthritis of the Hip in Children: Poor Results After Late and Inadequate Treatment

The results showed that the prognosis is worse in young children and also in cases with associated osteomyelitis of the proximal femur, and the necessity for early diagnosis and treatment is reemphasized.

Septic arthritis of the hip in infancy: end result study.

Following infantile septic arthritis, the proximal femur may remain cartilaginous during the first years of life and a trochanteric arthroplasty seems the procedure of choice followed by a varus osteotomy if there is progressive subluxation.

Residual serologic reactivity in children with resolved Lyme arthritis.

All patients with resolved Lyme arthritis continue to show serologic reactivity beyond 6 months of therapy, and 68% of the patients satisfy Western blot criteria for positivity in the authors' laboratory.

Lyme Arthritis Presenting as Acute Septic Arthritis in Children

The authors suggest that in regions where Lyme disease is endemic, children who present with presumed septic arthritis should also be evaluated for Lyme disease.
