Can Yersinia enterocolitica food poisoning have any complications?

While Yersinia enterocolitica food poisoning often goes away on its own, complications may occur. A rash, called erythema nodosum, and reactive arthritis may begin about a month after the start of the initial illness. The rash associated with erythema nodosum may be red or purple in color, and it tends to occur on the legs or trunk. While this can be alarming, it usually disappears within a month. Reactive arthritis typically involves swelling and stiffening of the knees, ankles, and wrists, although other joints may be involved. This may last up to six months, although some patients have longer-term joint pain.
