The patient recovered from rapidly instituted relevant antibiotics and synovectomy, but there may be a risk of fatal delayed diagnosis and treatment by an atypical manifestation of invasive meningococcal disease. Invasive MenW disease has been increasing in recent years and has been described with atypical presentations.
