A 59-year-old woman with a status of post–renal transplant 7 years prior for autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease on tacrolimus and mycophenolate mofetil presented with subacute left knee and right wrist pain. She received local steroid injections to both areas as an outpatient without improvement in her symptoms. She had recently traveled to India, her home country, to visit relatives. Aspiration of the knee revealed 4+ acid fast bacilli on smear, and she was taken for surgical debridement. She was started on empiric antibiotics for presumed infection with rapidly growing mycobacteria. Her course was complic...

Ureaplasma species primarily colonize in the human genitourinary tract and are a cause of nongonococcal urethritis. Rare cases of septic arthritis caused by these organisms have been reported in immunocompromised hosts; however, their pathogenic activity in hosts with competent immune status remains unclear. Here, we report a case of septic arthritis caused by Ureaplasma parvum in an adult immunocompetent male patient diagnosed by 16S rRNA gene sequencing.
