Abstract

A case of erosive sterile arthritis following meningococcal meningitis is described. High levels of immune complexes were detected in serum and synovial fluid. This is the first case in literature in which destruction of subchondral bone is documented. The erosion showed a progressive remineralization in the six months following clinical recovery.
