Abstract

Only two incidents of periprosthetic infection due to Candida glabrata have been reported in the literature. We report successful treatment of a total hip replacement infected with this rare organism by a two-stage revision and synergistic combination antifungal therapy with Amphotericin B and 5-Flucytosine.
