Prosthetic joint infection due to Candida parapsilosis in the UK: case report and literature review



European Journal of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases 11(9): 847-849



A case of C. parapsilosis prosthetic knee joint infection is reported in a 63-yr-old man. Culture of debrided cancellous bone, joint capsule and periarticular tissue revealed C. parapsilosis, and this diagnosis was supported by histological and serological evidence. Cure followed removal of the prosthesis and treatment, first with a combination of amphotericin (50 mg/d) and 5-fluorocytosine (2500 mg 6 hourly) for 40 d, then ketoconazole (200 mg 12 hourly) for 24 d.
