Septic shoulder arthritis is a significant complication after arthroscopic surgery, with an estimated overall incidence of less than 1%. Despite the fact that this is considered to be low, an appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic pathway is required to avoid serious long-term consequences, eradicate the infection and ensure good treatment outcomes. The aim of this ICL is to summarize evidence-based literature regarding diagnostic and therapeutic options of native and postoperative septic shoulder arthritis with clinical relevant cases.
