The glenoid labrum, a crucial stabilizer of the joint, is frequently torn from the anterior glenoid in traumatic glenohumeral dislocation. This injury is called the Bankart’s lesion.The most common surgical method of treatment is an arthroscopic Bankart’s repair, in which the torn labrum undergoes refixation to the anterior glenoid rim. Chondrolysis is a devastating complication of arthroscopic shoulder surgery that can result in long-term disabling consequences. Severe articular damage caused by a loose or intra-articular metal suture anchor has been documented. The incidence of shoulder joint infection after shoulder arthroscopy is less than 1%.The most common organism isolated from septic joint after arthroscopy is Staphylococcus aureus & Propionibacterium acnes and rarely by Pseudomonas aeruginosa. We report a case of shoulder joint infection with Pseudomonas aeruginosa with pulled out metal suture anchors lying inside the joint.
