Fungi are not a common cause of musculoskeletal infection; however, reports of fungal bone and joint infections have lately surged and are expected to increase more. There is evidence of an increasing incidence of pathogenic and opportunistic fungal infections and emergence of new species of disease-causing fungi, particularly in immunosuppressed patients. Distribution is worldwide, signs of infection can be mild, and chronic evolution as well as delayed diagnosis are common.
