Abstract

Campylobacter species are commonly associated with human gastrointestinal tract infections. They are less frequent causes of extraintestinal infections, and Campylobacter joint infections are rare. We present the first documented case of prosthetic knee joint infection caused by Campylobacter gracilis.
