Abstract

Rupture of the knee joint occurred in a patient with urethritis, conjunctivitis, and arthritis (Reiter's syndrome). The diagnosis had been suggested by the acute joint effusion, edema, warmth, tenderness, and pain in the calf; it was confirmed by arthrography. Differential considerations include a Baker's cyst and thrombophlebitis.
