Septic Arthritis of the Distal Interphalangeal Joint in Cattle

Description
Infection enters the distal interphalangeal joint via 3 possible main sites: 1) the dorsal commissure of the interdigital space, via penetrating trauma or complicated footrot (interdigital phlegmon); 2) sandcracks; or 3) white line disease or retroarticular abscess. Septic arthritis in the digit of a young bull. After severe footrot infection, a sinus was formed and granulation tissue accumulated around the sinus. Courtesy of Dr. Paul Greenough
