A 27-year-old patient, with no pathological antecedent, has presented with oligoarthralgia in the left side (hip, knee, and ankle) evolving for 3 months with functional impotence, fever, and lost weight of 10 kg in 3 months. On physical examination, we found the limitation of the left heel with swelling and left ankle pain. [Figure 1] shows the X-ray of the pelvis and the thorax and the ultrasound image of the hip. The blood analysis showed a sedimentation rate to 69 mm/h, a C-reactive protein to 53 mg/L without leukocytosis in peripheral blood counts.
