Abstract In the literature many cases of Staphylococcus epidermidis (SE) complications are reported, but we have not found any reference about reactive arthritis secondary to SE. We report an unusual case of a patient with SE bacteriaemia, who developed elbow arthritis, asymmetrical sacroiliitis, keratoderma and restrictive cardiomyopathy. The clinical pictures, the instrumental and biochemical findings, in particular the positivity of HLA B27, allow us to set this case in the complex and heterogeneous chapter of reactive arthritis.

Abstract

Abstract In the literature many cases of Staphylococcus epidermidis (SE) complications are reported, but we have not found any reference about reactive arthritis secondary to SE. We report an unusual case of a patient with SE bacteriaemia, who developed elbow arthritis, asymmetrical sacroiliitis, keratoderma and restrictive cardiomyopathy. The clinical pictures, the instrumental and biochemical findings, in particular the positivity of HLA B27, allow us to set this case in the complex and heterogeneous chapter of reactive arthritis.
