Abstract

Phialemonium curvatum arthritis of the knee developed in a diabetic man following intra-articular injection of a corticosteroid. Cure was achieved with a 6-week course of intravenous amphotericin B deoxycholate. P. curvatum is commonly found in the environment and is often considered a contaminant; yet, its pathogenic potential should be seriously considered in selected patients.
