A 48-year-old woman with a history of hypertension, rheumatoid arthritis treated with chronic prednisone, and a two-pack-per- week cigarette use, presented to clinic with 8 years of right knee pain. She had an intra-articular steroid injection with some relief 6 years ago. She denied any hip pain and uses a cane for ambulation.
