Abstract

Prosthetic joint infection is devastating for both patients and surgeons alike. We present a case of prosthetic hip joint infection secondary to an extremely rare causative organism; Yersinia Enterocolitica. The prosthetic infection as well as the systemic upset caused had a life-threatening impact upon the patient. Multidisciplinary team working between the physicians and orthopedic surgeons ultimately yielded a positive outcome.
