Abstract

We describe a 30-year-old female presenting with synovitis of the left 4th proximal interphalangeal joint. Anaerobic cultures of the synovial membrane grew Peptostreptococcus magnus. The synovitis resolved after a course of intravenous penicillin G. The role of the anaerobic bacterium Peptostreptococcus magnus in joint infections is reviewed.
