Case Report and Literature Review
Candida glabrata Prosthetic Hip Infection
We present a case of a 60-year-old Caucasian woman carrying a 2-year-old hip prosthesis infected by Candida glabrata dose-dependent susceptible to fluconazole and voriconazole. Resection arthroplasty was performed. Six weeks of caspofungin plus liposomal amphotericin combination therapy achieved joint sterilization and allowed a successfully reimplantation arthroplasty. In addition, we review 9 cases of C. glabrata prosthetic joint infection described to date in the literature.
