J Clin Microbiol. 2013 Feb;51(2):692-5. doi: 10.1128/JCM.02674-12. Epub 2012 Nov 28.

Abstract

Prepatellar bursitis is typically a monomicrobial bacterial infection. A fungal cause is rarely identified. We describe a 61-year-old man who had received a renal transplant 21 months prior to presentation whose synovial fluid and surgical specimens grew Phomopsis bougainvilleicola, a pycnidial coelomycete.
