Abstract

 Described here is the first report of a monomicrobial joint infection caused by Veillonella dispar that resulted in loosening of a prosthesis. This clinical case shows that Veillonella spp. should not be disregarded as contaminant organisms, particularly when they are isolated in pure culture from clinical specimens involving cases of septic arthritis.
