Brief Answer:
There is a possibility.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir,

Thank you for posting your query.

Well your problem description seems like septic arthritis or simply osteoarthritis of shoulder considering age of the patient . Just let us know since when the fluid has accumulated in shoulder following infection . If it was there earlier then infection then probably its not related to infection . Any other query please ask.

Take care.
