Abstract

We describe a case of isolated Candida albicans arthritis in a non- intravenous drug-abusing, human immunodeficiency virus positive patient. This presentation is extremely unusual without other systemic features or risk factors for candidemia, as Candida septic arthritis normally reflects disseminated infection. In terms of diagnosis, this case also highlights the potential utility of magnetic resonance imaging for early detection of osteomyelitis.
