Septic arthritis is a frequent, potentially disabling and/or life-threatening disease. To diagnose a septic arthritis is a complex procedure, first because of numerous differential diagnoses (such as crystal arthritis), second because of poor sensitivity of initial gram staining (for example after untimely antibiotic therapy).
This protocol will use SELDI-TOF as a tool to analyse joint fluid of patients with various acute, polymorphonuclear-rich arthritis, as to determine specific and sensitive new biomarkers of a septic origin.
Such biomarkers will allow rapid diagnosis of septic arthritis in the first hours of admission.

Arthritis in children, with onset before 16 years of age. The terms juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) and juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) refer to classification systems for chronic arthritis in children. Only one subtype of juvenile arthritis (polyarticular-onset, rheumatoid factor-positive) clinically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis and is considered its childhood equivalent.
Systemic-onset rheumatoid arthritis in adults. It differs from classical rheumatoid arthritis in that it is more often marked by acute febrile onset, and generalized lymphadenopathy and hepatosplenomegaly are more prominent.
