Campylobacter lariis a rare cause of extraintestinal infection in humans. There has only been one prior case report of prosthetic joint infection in an immunocompetent adult, which was rapidly fatal. We can identify no previous case reports of successful management of this condition.

We discuss our management of a 63 year old stable manager that presented with 1 week history of right prosthetic knee pain and swelling. Following two washouts the patient underwent a first-stage revision of his knee. Post-operative antibiotic choice was empirical, and 28-day outcome has been promising, with complete resolution of inflammatory markers and resolution of symptoms. Outcome following planned second-stage revision will be discussed at FIS 2019.
