Abstract

Candida infection after total knee arthroplasty is very rare. The diagnosis is difficult due to lack of obvious clinical symptoms. Candida albicans is the most common strain in Candida infections after total knee arthroplasties and Candida glabrata has been reported in only 5 cases in the literature. We report here on a case of Candida glabrata infection after total knee arthroplasty, and this was treated by two-stage revision and using an antibiotics-loaded cement spacer.
