Fungal periprosthetic joint infections (PJIs) are rare but associated with significant mortality. We report a case of a finger PJI secondary to Aspergillus terreus in an immunocompetent patient with soil exposure, successfully treated with surgical debridement and voriconazole. Identification of A terreus is important because of intrinsic amphotericin B resistance.
