infection in knee related to lupus???

My husband has lupus and for the past three weeks he has had an infection in his knee. He has taken two rounds of antibiotics but they are not working. The ortho surgeon thinks that he got something in his knee that caused the infection and wants to do surgery. My husband is convinced that the infection is related to lupus. Has anyone heard or experienced these symptoms before?
