In brief: Common

An aseptic effusion is much more common than a septic (infected) effusion.
It is usually related to underlying joint problems such as arthritis or a meniscus (cartilage) tear. It can also be related to many other medical/systemic disorders. Rheumatoid arthritis or lupus are just two examples of many possibilites. See your physician, rheumatologist, orthopedic surgeon for evaluation.
