Fungal infection of prosthetic joints: a report of two cases.


Two cases of yeast infection of prosthetic joints, caused by Torulopsis glabrata and Candida albicans are described. One case occurred 27 months after joint insertion. Neither patient had an underlying illness predisposing them to infection. Removal of the prosthetic device appears necessary for cure of such infection.
