Whatever we are seeing in this xray does not explain the rather fast onset and progression of the condition (within a month unilaterally) as u described. So we have to keep an open mind about alternative diagnosis that is not visible in the xray like reactive arthritis, sceptic arthritis, tumour etc. U need to examine the patient thoroughly about the: nature of swelling, the range of motion, etc take more detailed history about constitutional symptoms and trauma. After that blood works to rule out arthritis and infection and an mri may be needed
