Abstract

Prosthetic joint infection associated with coccidioidomycosis is uncommon, and there is no single publication that addresses the treatment of this infection. With the increasing number of prosthetic joint replacements in the Coccidioides endemic area, it is inevitable that there will be more infections associated with prosthetic joints. We reviewed 6 cases of prosthetic joint infections associated with coccidioidomycosis from the literature and clinical practice. The patients and their clinical issues were analyzed and approaches to the treatment of this infection were developed so that physicians can use the information as a guide to therapy, depending on the individual circumstances.
