Multiple joint replacements have been employed to treat joint problems in patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and is frequently used to address Osteoarthritis too. Septic Arthritis after Arthroplasty is a difficult clinical problem. Polyarticular Septic Arthritis (PASA) in this patient population is an emerging and extremely difficult entity to manage. We describe two patients of RA with PASA and our line of management for this condition. Early recognition and appropriate intervention should help prevent catastrophic outcomes in these unfortunate patients.
