Information supplied is inadequate Significant effusion (see the suprapatellar crescent). There's also a bit of redness, medial, a little more than lateral. Your top d/d contenders are trauma, septic arthritis, Crystal arthropathy, and monoarticular RA Apart from regular blood work up, aspiration and synovial fluid analysis should point you in the right direction. With the short history, XRay is unlikely to give you much information. MRI might. treatment depends on the identified cause
