Caption: Infected surgical wound. View of an inflamed area around stitches (sutures) left following the removal of a baker's cyst from behind the knee of a 63 year old woman. A baker's cyst is a small fluid-filled lump behind the knee caused by a build-up of pressure within the knee joint. It is often a complication of a disorder such as rheumatoid arthritis. Infections such as this may be cleared up by antibiotic drugs.
