Historically, synovial fluids have been classified as noninflammatory (WBC count 50-1000), inflammatory (WBC count 1000-75,000), septic (WBC count>100,000), or hemorrhagic. However, septic synovial fluid can have cell counts as low as a few thousand early in the infectious process; thus, differentiation of inflammatory and septic joints is not truly possible...
