To the editor: A 13-year-old boy was hospitalized for evaluation of arthritis of 2 weeks' duration, and pneumonia of 3 months' duration. The pneumonia had been treated with several antibiotics with partial resolution. The patient lost 9 kg of weight while he had pneumonia.
Three weeks before admission the boy had developed pain, erythema, and swelling of the metatarsal-phalangeal joint of his left great toe, followed 1 week later by swelling in the left knee and right elbow. One week before admission he had had swelling and tenderness of the fourth proximal interphalangeal joint of his left hand.
