A case report is presented of a 50-year-old woman who was seen in Accident and Emergency because of pain in the lumbar area. She was subsequently diagnosed with septic arthritis of the left hip due to being Neisseria gonorrhoeae positive for beta-lactamase. She responded to treatment with ceftriaxone, but later required a total hip replacement.
