Salvage bacteriophage therapy for a chronic MRSA prosthetic joint infection
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractThis is a case of a 72 year old male with a chronic methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus prosthetic joint infection. After the third intravenous dose of bacteriophage therapy, an unusual, reversible transaminitis prompted stoppage of bacteriophage therapy. Nevertheless, treatment was successful and the patient's severe chronic infection was eradicated. Copyright 2020 by the authors.
