Answer

In disseminated infection, it is important to evaluate for evidence of meningitis and endocarditis. Inpatient management and consultation with an infectious disease specialist to decide upon initial regimen are recommended, especially in patients who may be noncompliant with therapy, in whom the diagnosis is uncertain, who have purulent arthritis, or who have other complications.
