Pyogenic tenosynovitis is an uncommon condition in children and there are few published case reports. We present a series of 11 cases who were treated in the Geneva's Children Hospital in the last 10 years. Kingella kingae was the main pathogen and the characteristics of infection (inflammatory indices, clinical findings and severity) are similar to other osteoarticular K kingae's infections in infants.
