PMID: 35385412.


A 46-year-old female patient with a history of Streptococcus pyogenes septic arthritis 32 years earlier presented to an outpatient clinic with complaints of chronic wrist pain and stiffness. Imaging revealed complete pan-carpal metacarpal fusion with advanced radiocarpal arthritis. The patient's pain improved with 3 months of nonoperative management, and she was able to return to previous levels of activity.
