The hematogenous route is common in most forms of arthritis including viral. Infection of the joint may also be by direct spread from neighboring soft-tissue or bone. Penetrating injuries are especially important as a cause of fungal septic arthritis. Pathology: The basic inflammatory process in infection of the joint is marked by hyperemia of the synovium, infiltration by leukocytes, lymphocytes and macrophages and plasma cells. An associated exudate develops which may be purulent, serous or fibrinous.

They first develop in the articular matrix, menisci and intervertebral discs. The deposits later enlarge into large chalky white friable masses. They are distinguishable from gout by their positive birefringence under polarized light (gout contains uric acid crystals that are needle-like and negatively birefringent). Hemophilia Hemarthroses occur in 75–90% of patients with hemophilia. The knee, ankles and elbows are the joints most commonly affected. For obscure reasons, joints distal to the elbow and ankle are rarely affected.

Surgical pathology: The most striking changes are usually seen in load bearing areas of the articular cartilage. In the early stages the cartilage is thicker than normal but with progression of the disease, the joint surface thins, the cartilage softens, the integrity of the surface is breached and vertical clefts develop. This gives the cartilage a resemblance to velvet and is termed fibrillation. Deep cartilage ulcers, extending to bone, may appear. Areas of fibrocartilaginous repair may develop.
