PMID:  3793463     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Candida osteoarticular infections are extremely rare. A review of the world literature shows only few ten cases. The authors report a further case which followed a different course and was treated differently from those reported in the literature. They discuss the predisposing conditions which favour the development of this infection and predict that it is likely to become more common in future in subjects at risk. Finally, they stress the validity and efficacy of Amphotericin B in the medical treatment.
