Fungal prosthetic joint infection (PJI) is a rare but severe complication of artroplasty. We report a case of PJI due to azole-resistant Candida albicans successfully treated with combination of prolonged administration of anidulafungin and two-stage joint exchange with insertion of a mega-prosthesis.
