Pyomyositis and polyarticular septic arthritis from Hemophilus influenzae in a nonimmunocompromised adult.
We describe a healthy woman in whom pyomyositis of the left buttock, polyarticular septic arthritis, and meningitis due to Hemophilus influenzae type B developed after pneumonia. Systemic antibiotic therapy and local drainage provided a good result. This is the first case of pyomyositis and the 30th case of septic arthritis from Hemophilus influenzae described in an adult.
