Patients resort to all types of non-operative treatment to avoid surgery. One such treatment, injection of hydrocortisone in the knee joint, causes considerable damage to the joint, sometimes leading to destruction similar to that seen in Charcot joint. The classical feature being gross deformity due to bony defect.
