In ­this ­paper we ­report a 48-­year-old man ­with ­septic ­arthritis of the ­wrist and ­ankle due to Streptococcus pneu­moniae. No ­known pre­dis­posing ­factor was ­found. Only ­about 300 ­cases of pneu­mo­coccal ­arthritis ­have ­been ­reported in the lit­er­a­ture ­since 1888 and ­less ­than 10% of ­these ­affect the ­wrist. The man­age­ment of bac­te­rial ­arthritis is ­reviewed.
