Advanced age-distinguishing septic from nonseptic bursitis is not always straightforward. patients with septic bursitis generally present earlier in the clinical course, have more pain, tenderness, erythema, and warmth compared to those with an inflammatory process. the most important predisposing factor in septic bursitis is trauma (precedes septic arthritis in up to 70% of cases.) other predisposing factors include: chronic illness (such a diabetes mellitus, alcohol abuse), chronic skin conditions, previous noninfectious inflammation of the bursae such as rheumatoid arthritis or gout, occupations in which there is repetitive trauma to the area.
