In brief: Most pathology in---

-joints such as inflammation or internal injury causes an increase of fluid.
Even in severe degenerative arthritis of the knee, when opened 4 a TKA there's always fluid present. I hope someone else will answer this who has knowledge of any condition that causes a decrease.
