Mentions: A 72-year-old woman presented with a prosthetic joint infection after a revision knee arthroplasty, performed for a chronic primary arthroplasty infection through a standard anterior approach. A methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus was isolated in conventional cultures from knee joint fluid. The surgical wound had a torpid evolution and needed in total three consecutive debridement processes and joint spacers (Figure 1).
