Abstract:
Infliximab, a monoclonal chimeric antibody to tumour necrosis factor (TNF)α, is a novel therapy used in the management of chronic refractory pouchitis that is unresponsive to conventional medical therapy.; This report describes a case of non-infective bursitis following infliximab therapy and documents the role of musculoskeletal ultrasound in detecting soft tissue fluid collections and in guiding aspiration.; A high index of suspicion is required when assessing new or worsening musculoskeletal pain in patients receiving infliximab and involvement of a rheumatologist at an early stage is essential in order to appropriately diagnose and manage this condition.
