Mycobacterium thermoresistibile infection following knee-replacement surgery.
We report a case of Mycobacterium thermoresistibile as a cause of infection following total knee replacement. This infection was masked by the prior isolation of a vancomycin-resistant enterococcus. The infection was resolved with long-term therapy using moxifloxacin and doxycycline.
