Core Tip Our retrospective study in Saudi Arabia reveals distinctive microbiological profiles and clinical characteristics of septic arthritis. Notably, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus prevails in native joints, while Brucella spp. is more common in prosthetic joints. We found a balanced gender distribution, with the knee being the most frequently affected joint. Joint preservation was achieved in the majority of cases, despite the need for surgical intervention. Comorbidities differed between native and prosthetic joints, impacting mortality rates. This study sheds light on important epidemiological aspects of septic arthritis in Saudi Arabia, guiding tailored diagnostic and management approaches.
