Le CRIOAc Lyon a publié de nombreux "case report" dans le domaine des IOA, dans des revues médicales internationales. L'apprentissage basé sur l'expérience acquise dans le traitement individuel de chaque patient, a pour nous des vertus pédagogiques importantes, et sont précieuses dans l'élaboration des algorithmes de prise en charge et dans l'évaluation des stratégies médico-chirurgicales.

Among carbapenem-resistant Enterobacterales, metallo-beta-lactamase producing strains represent a growing therapeutic challenge. While the association of aztreonam and ceftazidime-avibactam has been investigated in recent years for the treatment of infections involving these strains, little to no clinical data support the use of this association for the treatment of bone and joint infections. We report two cases of complex bone and joint

Prosthetic joint infections (PJIs) caused by fungi, although relatively rare, represent a major surgery-related complication. An extremely rare fungal PJI, following revised total knee replacement (TKR) caused by Candida lusitaniae, is reported, and a meticulous review of similar cases is provided. A 74-year-old female, who underwent primary total knee arthroplasty 10 years ago and a revision surgery three weeks ago,

Background: Q fever is a zoonotic disease caused by the bacterium Coxiella burnetii, a strictly intracellular pathogen that can cause acute and chronic infection. Chronic Q fever can occur in immunocompetent as well as in immunocompromised hosts, as a persistent localized infection. The main localizations are endocardial, vascular and, less frequently, osteoarticular. The most frequent osteoarticular form is spondyliscitis. Recommended

Bacteriophages are viruses that specifically target bacteria. They are considered to have a high potential in patients with prosthetic joint infection (PJI), as they have a synergistic anti-biofilm activity with antibiotics. We report here the case of an 88-year-old man (63 kg) with relapsing Pseudomonas aeruginosa prosthetic knee infection. The patient had severe alteration of the general status and was bedridden with

Infection is the most dramatic complication in patients with knee megaprosthesis. Its management is more complex in comparison with patients with primary arthroplasty, with a high risk of relapse. Lytic bacteriophages are considered to have a high potential in patients with prosthetic joint infection as it has been demonstrated that they have a synergistic anti-biofilm activity with antibiotics. The Defensive

The surgical treatment of septic non-union is challenging and carries a high failure rate. Bone defect management and fracture site stabilisation are key treatment objectives. We report the case of a 75-year-old woman who underwent intercalary endoprosthetic reconstruction of a large tibial defect due to septic non-union after two previous treatment failures. The two-stage procedure involved extensive excision of infected

Management of knee bone loss after gunshot trauma requires a multidisciplinary approach. Two cases of knee arthroplasty after devastating ballistic trauma are reported. Treatment comprised several steps: sampling, bone resection, reinforced cement spacer, latent sepsis control, and prosthetic reconstruction. The patients showed no neurovascular disorder and had a functioning extensor mechanism. At follow-up of at least 2 years, results were

Background: The number of hip and knee arthroplasty procedures is steadily increasing as life expectancy increases. Coxiella burnetii may be responsible for culture-negative prosthetic joint arthritis and is associated with antibiotic failure and repeated surgeries. We report the first case series of C. burnetii-related culture-negative prosthetic joint arthritis. Methods: Cases were retrieved from the French National Referral center for Q
