Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Aspergillus discitis is a rare disease that usually occurs in immunocompromised hosts. In the one case reported in the orthopedic literature surgical debridement was required. Two additional cases, which occurred in intravenous drug abusers, are reported here. One case is unique in the orthopedic literature in that eradication of the disease occurred with chemotherapy alone.
